Members of South Gloucestershire Council’s (SGC’s) Development Control West Committee have agreed ‘in principle’ to a package of £110 million of community and infrastructure investment for the Cribbs/Patchway New Neighbourhood (CPNN).
The money has been secured through an innovative and collaborative Framework Agreement with landowners and developers to provide the new facilities and transport infrastructure to support the creation of 5,700 new homes, new community and employment land allocation. The investment is set to bring benefits to communities in both South Gloucestershire and the Bristol border.
The multi-million pound package includes:
- Five new schools, including a new secondary school and four primary schools
- Four new nurseries
- Two community centres and a multi-use community hub with provision for GP health services
- More than£30 million will be provided for transport infrastructure, to be match-funded by the council
- Nearly 1,000 new affordable homes provided across the development at no cost to the council
- Recreational, leisure facilities and allotments
Cllr Dave Hockey, Chair of the Development Control West Committee, said:
“This decision marks another major milestone for the Cribbs/Patchway New Neighbourhood, which will, in time, create many new homes, jobs, community facilities and vital infrastructure. Provisions have been made for two new rail stations and the MetroBus, which are very important in addressing the additional journeys associated with such a major development. Arrangements are also being made for the relocation of the air ambulance and police helicopters.”
