Elderberry Walk is an exemplar housing development for suburban Bristol, demonstrating how high social, environmental and ecological aspirations can be achieved at low cost. It has been driven by doing simple things well – making streets where front doors face front doors, with a logical easily understood layout, where car parking is integrated and not dominant. At its heart is the Green Lane, a landscaped street with wildlife swales and incidental play. A minimum number of flexible house and apartment types repeat, and flex where the street geometry responds to the angles of the site, creating special corner houses.
