South Gloucestershire Council is staging three drop-in consultation events which will summarise progress in the development of proposals for the Cribbs/Patchway New Neighbourhood.
This will be a major new development area providing approximately 5,700 new dwellings, jobs and community facilities.
The council’s Core Strategy long-term planning blueprint foresees the construction of 2,500 homes on the former Filton Airfield, 1,200 homes on land south of the airfield, 1,000 homes on land west of the A4018 at Cribbs Causeway and a further 1,000 homes in other parts of the area, including Patchway Trading Estate.
The development will take place over the next 10-15 years and it is additional to the construction of 2,400 homes at Charlton Hayes, north of the airfield.
The drop-in events are as follows:
- Thursday 7th November 2013: 3pm to 7pm at Clifton Rugby Club, Station Road, Cribbs Causeway, Bristol, BS10 7TT
- Friday 8th November 2013: 3pm to 7pm at Filton Library, Shield Centre, Link Road, Filton, Bristol, BS34 7BR
- Tuesday 12th November 2013: 3pm to 7pm at the Greenway Centre, Southmead, Bristol, BS10 5PY
Following a period of public consultation that ended in January 2013, a draft development framework, known as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD), was “endorsed” by the council and is being used to guide future development. The document sets out requirements which the development will be expected to achieve and a framework diagram which illustrates how it might develop.
Development land within the new neighbourhood is in several different ownerships, and the landowners/developers have submitted their own draft ‘framework plan’, to illustrate how they see the area developing.
The landowners have asked the council to endorse their framework plan and include it within the SPD to guide future development. The council says it is likely to take a decision on whether this should be done on 20th November 2013.
Landowners Skanska and Deeley Freed Estates, who control the land west of the A4018, are holding their own drop-in exhibition at Clifton Rugby club on 7th and 9th November. Details of their proposals can be viewed at: www.landatcribbscauseway.co.uk
