Dovercourt Road, Lockleaze, Bristol
Bricks have been appointed to deliver a Public Art Plan for a new residential development in the heart of Lockleaze. Based on a former depot to the rear of Dovercourt Road, the site is being developed by Countryside Partnerships West (delivery developer) and Goram Homes (housing company). The development will provide 140 new homes as a mix of houses and apartments, 30% of which will be affordable.
The site is surrounded by woodland and provides wildlife corridors through the Lockleaze neighbourhood. Bricks will be led by local residents in drawing up a Public Art Plan that reflects the character of the site and provides cultural benefits for both future residents and existing local neighbours.
Summer 2023 to Spring 2024

A creative public consultation event is due to be held in Summer/Autumn 2023 to explore what kind of public art could be accommodated on the site. The event will be delivered by a local creative practitioner. News of that event will be posted here in due course.
The Public Art Programme responds to the sacrifice greenfield land and its natural plant inhabitants make, to allow us to develop much needed new homes to live.
