Eutopia Homes submits plans for 315-home scheme in Gloucester

Eutopia Homes has submitted a planning proposal for a 315-unit residential scheme on an eight-acre brownfield site in Gloucester.

The project — designed by Darling Associates Architects — will replace a disused former railway depot near the Royal Gloucestershire Hospital, which Eutopia Homes acquired from Network Rail in December 2021.

If approved, the development will provide 87 two- and three-bedroom townhouses, as well as four apartment buildings comprising 228 studio, one- and two-bedroom flats.

All homes will have access to private outdoor space through a balcony or garden.

In addition, the scheme will include over 500 cycle spaces for residents, a new pedestrian route, six pocket forests, green play areas, an open park, bird and bat boxes, and landscaped frontage.

Lorna Henderson, director at Eutopia Homes, said: “The potential of this brownfield site has never been realised, despite valiant efforts from the council to do so, and we are pleased to deliver on its long-held aspiration for connectivity between Horton Road and Great Western Road.

“The transformation of this site will play an important role in supporting the growth of this fantastic city and deliver much-needed housing of the highest quality.

“We have adopted a people-over-cars approach at every turn, with ample green space and sustainability considerations running throughout.”
