Public display of new Tintagel Close homes plans

HOUSING association and housebuilder Curo is offering the public a first look at proposals for the redevelopment of Tintagel Close in Keynsham.

A public exhibition will be held on Friday March 8 to share the proposals and enable local residents to give their views. The consultation will take place between 4-7pm at the Queens Road Centre, 50 Queens Rd, Keynsham, BS31 2NR.

Curo’s designs would see every home at the development designated as affordable housing. Ranging from one to four bedrooms, the 45 homes will either be available through Bath & North East Somerset Council’s lettings system, HomeChoice, for subsidised social rent – typically 40% below the market rate – or sold through Shared Ownership.

Shared Ownership is a part-rent, part-buy scheme in which the deposit is far less than a buyer would need to buy a home on the open market. This typically supports younger buyers to take their first step on the housing ladder.

Ten of the new homes at Tintagel Close would be available for Shared Ownership. People interested in Shared Ownership can register their interest and check their eligibility at

Curo is also proposing to improve the neighbourhood by enhancing the public space so it provides a pleasant, welcoming environment for all local residents.

Curo chief executive Victor da Cunha says: “After consulting with the local community, we’re excited to finally present our proposals. We want this redevelopment to make a real difference to the local neighbourhood and ensure it remains a place people love to live in for years to come. Please come along to the exhibition to let us know what you think.”

Subject to planning permission, Curo could start building works in spring next year and complete the development by late 2026.
