Public Consultation on the Cribbs Causeway/Patchway New Neighbourhood Draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)
Consultation open: 26th Nov 2012 to 1st Feb 2013
Comments received will inform the production of the final Supplementary Planning Document for the Cribbs/Patchway New Neighbourhood, which is anticipated to be adopted by the Council in early 2013, following the adoption of the Council’s Core Strategy document. Once adopted, the SPD will set out the design principles the Council will use in determining any planning applications for these New Neighbourhoods and they will identify the infrastructure required to support the needs of the new communities living there.
Character Areas of the New Neighbourhood
The December 2011 edition of the Core Strategy, which is currently being reviewed by an independent inspector, identifies the following “character areas”:
An area of new mixed development for approximately 3,700 dwellings with supporting community and social facilities, and incorporating strategic open spaces.
This area includes land south of Filton Airfield (from Charlton Common west to the A4018), land north of the airfield (but excluding Charlton Hayes) and land released through the proposed redevelopment of the airfield.
An area of further development and diversification, including approximately 1,000 dwellings post-2021, for future designation as a sub-regional centre.
A new residential community to the west of the A4018 for approximately 1,000 dwellings, including sporting and community facilities and strategic green infrastructure.
Analysis of Housing Numbers
The December 2010 Core Strategy foresaw 1,750 dwellings in the “south of airfield” and Cribbs Causeway areas.
The December 2011 Core Strategy forsees 5,700 new dwellings in the Cribbs/Patchway new neighbourhood, an increase of 3,950 dwellings over the December 2010 edition.
Note: The Haw Wood area did not feature in the December 2010 edition.
Within the New Charlton area, 1,100 dwellings are to be built by Persimmon south of the airfield at Fishpool Hill – these were already planned prior to the announcement of the airfield’s closure – leaving 2,600 to be built on land currently within the boundary of the airfield.
The Cribbs/Patchway New Neighbourhood doesn’t include Charlton Hayes, where 2,400 dwellings are now planned, an increase of 200 over the figure in the December 2010 Core Strategy. The total number of new dwellings planned for the Patchway district ward by 2026 is therefore 8,100.
