‘Filton Keynes’ framework agreement signed

Posted on Wednesday 21st March 2018 at 8:23 pm by SH (Editor)

Signing of the Cribbs Patchway New Neighbourhood Framework Agreement.

South Gloucestershire Council (SGC) has announced the completion of an important agreement between developers and landowners which will see thousands of new homes and supporting infrastructure built at the Cribbs Patchway New Neighbourhood (CPNN) over the next ten years.

The new neighbourhood will provide approximately 5,700 dwellings, around 50 hectares of employment land, open spaces, schools, community facilities, a new railway station and a dedicated route for MetroBus.

Dubbed ‘Filton Keynes’, this will be a very major development and SGC says it is keen to ensure that work is co-ordinated and that the potential impacts on surrounding communities are identified and addressed.

Development land within the new neighbourhood is in several different ownerships, including YTL Developments, Deeley Freed, Taylor Wimpey and BAE.

The CPNN framework agreement will ensure that all future development in the area is carried out in a collaborative and co-ordinated way, specifically that the required infrastructure for the whole site is delivered at the appropriate time, in the appropriate location, rather than on a piecemeal basis on individual disparate sites. It will also make sure that access is gained between individual development sites within the new neighbourhood, and ensure triggers for the timing and delivery of infrastructure, services and facilities. The endorsed framework plan demonstrates how access across the wider new neighbourhood can be achieved.

Colin Skellett, chairman of YTL Developments, said:

“Signing the framework agreement is an important step forward in unlocking the Cribbs Patchway New Neighbourhood. Following the granting of outline planning permission in October 2017 for 2,650 new homes and 24 hectares of employment land on our airfield site, YTL is now working on finalising the other planning agreements required to start construction of our new site access in March. We will work with our neighbours, SGC and the local communities to deliver much needed housing across the area.”

Filton Airfield plans cleared for take-off (again)

Posted on Thursday 30th November 2017 at 11:28 am by SH (Editor)

Artist's impression of Filton Airfield redevelopment.

South Gloucestershire Council’s planning committee has, for the second time in two years, resolved to approve outline planning permission for the re-development of the 143ha (354 acre) former Filton Airfield site.

A previous planning application for the site was put forward by then-owners BAE Systems in October 2014 and subsequently approved, subject to the signing of agreements requiring the developer to make financial contributions to local infrastructure schemes. However, BAE Systems later sold the site to YTL, a Malaysia-based infrastructure investor, without completing these agreements.

The latest plans, submitted by YTL Developments UK Ltd, retain the headline figure of 2,675 new homes. They also include provision for 24ha (62 acres) of employment space, three new schools, recreational areas and community facilities, a doctors’ surgery, a new railway station and a dedicated MetroBus route.

Filton Airfield is one of the largest brownfield sites in the country, and it represents YTL Developments’ first major project in the UK. The company’s ambition is to create a new neighbourhood where people can live and work, which is seamlessly connected to its surroundings and existing local communities.

Its connectivity with Bristol to the south, Cribbs Causeway and the surrounding neighbourhoods of South Gloucestershire and then beyond to London, has been an essential part of the design, which includes numerous interconnecting cycle paths and public transport options.

YTL will make a major investment in infrastructure and is preparing the site for development. It plans to develop the scheme as a single landowner, to ensure the whole site is well coordinated, well built and well connected to deliver a “thriving new neighbourhood for living and working”. It is hoped that thousands of new jobs will be created in the employment space, with a focus on advanced engineering and aerospace.

Revised planning application for Filton Airfield

Posted on Thursday 1st June 2017 at 8:31 pm by SH (Editor)

Artist's impression of Filton Airfield redevelopment.

A revised outline planning application has been submitted for the redevelopment of the former Filton Airfield, which ceased operations in December 2012.

A previous planning application for the site was put forward by then-owners BAE Systems in October 2014 and South Gloucestershire Council agreed to “resolve to approve” the application subject to the signing of S106 agreements requiring the developer to make financial contributions to local infrastructure schemes.

As BAE Systems did not intend to develop the site itself, it did not sign the S106 agreements, and the airfield was later sold to YTL, a Malaysia-based infrastructure investor, in late 2015.

The new planning application brought forward by YTL retains the original headline parameters of 2,675 residential dwellings and 24ha of stand-alone employment land, however it now proposes a “linear park” along the axis of the old airfield runway and a new town centre featuring “buildings of up to 10 storeys and a single tall building of up to 30 storeys”.

The revised planning application, reference PT14/3867/O, may be viewed online or in hard copy at Patchway One Stop Shop, The Patchway Hub, Rodway Road, Patchway BS34 5PE.

Posted on Monday 9th February 2015 at 12:28 am by SH (Editor)

SPD for the Cribbs/Patchway New Neighbourhood.

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.”
