Filwood housing developments

Filwood housing developments

Information on new housing developments in Filwood.

We're planning to develop three sites in Filwood for residential housing. These sites are currently planned to include a mix of council homes and affordable housing tenures such as shared ownership.

The sites are:

  • Filwood Broadway
  • Leinster Avenue 
  • Kingswear Road

Following consultation for all three sites in 2020, a planning submission for the construction of 71 homes at Leinster Avenue was submitted in July 2020 (Ref 20/03297/F).

Information on the application can be found on the planning portal

Demolition of former cinema

We have started to demolish the former cinema. 

The first phase involved:

  • the removal of asbestos and internal stripping out of the former cinema building
  • preparing the structural works required
  • securing the site

We’re currently out to tender for the remaining demolition and site clearance. Residents will be updated when this work is due to start.
