Exciting new plan to revitalise the centre of Bristol to make it more family-friendly, safer, healthier and greener
Bristol City Council (BCC) are keen to hear the views of local residents, businesses, landowners, developers and other stakeholders on the future of the city centre through an informal stage of public engagement.
Over the course of 2022, BCC will be working to prepare a Development and Delivery Plan to guide the long-term regeneration of the central area of Bristol. This will build on the Bristol One City Plan and the Bristol City Centre Framework. The Plan will cover a large area of central Bristol, extending from Marlborough Street and the St James Barton roundabout in the north, to Castle Park in the south, Bond Street South in the east and Upper Maudlin Street in the west.
The Plan, once complete, will guide the recovery, regeneration and transformation of Bristol city centre over the period to 2050. It will look at what needs to be done within the city centre to:
• Create inclusive and sustainable economic growth
• Provide quality homes for Bristol’s growing population
• Create jobs and opportunities in places that people can reach sustainably
• Support a thriving leisure and retail sector and night-time economy
• Respond to the climate and ecological emergencies.
• Provide quality public spaces and a green and healthy environment.
This Plan will not be designing the city centre in detail. Instead, it will think about the types of development and investment that might be needed in the future to support the city ambitions. It will set out a vision to guide the future of the city centre and will explain how this can be realised.
SHARE YOUR VIEWS
The views and opinions of everyone who lives in Bristol or who uses Bristol city centre are hugely important. (BCC are also keen to hear from people who perhaps don’t use the city centre at the moment and understand what might encourage them to do so in future).
