Bristol residents are being asked to give their views on a development that promises to deliver 1,500 homes and employment space for over 500 jobs.
The revitalisation of the area around Mead Street is part of the first phase of the 130-hectare Temple Quarter and St Philip’s Marsh regeneration area, which is being jointly delivered by Bristol City Council, the West of England Combined Authority, Network Rail and Homes England.
The Temple Quarter project aims to bring up to 10,000 new homes and 22,000 new jobs to Bristol in the next 20 years.
Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol, said: ‘Our regeneration plans for Temple Quarter and St Philip’s Marsh are unashamedly ambitious as we plan for the homes, jobs and public spaces that Bristol needs.
‘The proposals for Mead Street in this development brief represent the next stage of this exciting project and reflect the need to bring new homes and jobs to the city while tackling the challenges of the climate and ecological emergencies. Mead Street is ideally located to take on these challenges, close to Temple Meads station and walking distance from jobs and leisure in the city centre.
‘Temple Quarter will have an impact on the whole city as it becomes a world-class gateway to Bristol over the coming years. We want people from across the city to have their say on the ideas set out here, so that we can create a new neighbourhood that meets Bristolians’ needs for the future.’
