Relocating St Bernadette’s Rugby Club

St Bernadette’s Rugby Club currently uses a club house and pitches at Hengrove Park.  

We're relocating the club to the former Whitehouse Centre and school on Fulford Road in Hartcliffe. We’re working with club members to design new facilities. We'll consult on and submit a planning application in later 2019.

The 21st (Gladstone) Scout Group currently uses premises at Hengrove Park. We'll relocate these facilities close to their current location. 

The relocation was decided in May 2019. View details of the decision (agenda item 14).

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 submitted a planning application in May 2019. View the full planning application on the Planning Portal (reference 19/02242/M).’

We expect work to start on site in winter, under the project name ‘Jessop Park’
