Charlton Hayes is a major mixed use development on land to the north of Filton Airfield. Planning permission to build 2,200 new homes housing an estimated 6,000 residents was granted by South Gloucestershire Council in 2008.
The Charlton Hayes name comes from the original village of Charlton, which was demolished in the 1940s for a runway extension at Filton to accommodate the giant Bristol Brabazon plane.

Erection of building to form a 420 place Primary School with associated playing field, staff car parking and landscaping.
Update (24/11/17): The Endeavour Academy Trust has confirmed that the new primary school in Charlton Hayes will have places for both Reception AND Year 1 aged children when it opens in September 2019.
From a report presented to a South Gloucestershire Council meeting on 15th February 2017:
“Schools commissioned in 2016/17 where the funding and land has already been secured through the Section 106 process include the new 420 place primary school to serve the development at Charlton Hayes. The Council’s preferred Trust sponsor, Endeavour Academy Trust, was approved by the DfE [Department for Education] in November 2016.”
“It is planned that the school will open in September 2019. The Trust is exploring the programme of works to bring this forward to 2018 though initial considerations mean that this will bring about increased risks to the scheme. Responsibility for commissioning the works and for delivering the school on time rests with Endeavour Academy Trust though the Local Authority will continue to work in partnership with the Trust.”
