Relocating St Bernadette’s Rugby Club

St Bernadette’s Rugby Club currently uses a club house and pitches at Hengrove Park.  We’re consulting with the club on what their future requirements are. 

We hope to relocate the club in the former Whitehouse Centre and school on Fulford Road in Hartcliffe. We’re working with club members to design new facilities.

Hartcliffe Campus

An outline application for up to 350 homes was approved at Planning Committee in September 2018. The full planning application is on the Planning Portal (reference 18/02055/P).

In December 2018, we selected LiveWest and Keepmoat Homes to develop the site. They’re consulting on their plans and developing a reserved matters planning application for submitting in spring 2019. We expect work to start on site in autumn, under the project name ‘Jessop Park’.  Details of the consultation are on the Jessop Park website.
