Have your say on the future of Brislington Meadows

People are being asked to have their say on plans to build around 300 homes at the 10-hectare Brislington Meadows site.

The site has been earmarked by Bristol City Council for development for some years. Homes England, which has responsibility for accelerating new residential development, bought it in March to bring forward plans for new homes and community facilities, and the design team are currently running a community engagement exercise asking for “ideas, issues, aspirations or questions”.

A “high quality” development is proposed on the site, including affordable housing.

Some queries have already been raised over the future of the former Brislington police station, and very shortly Homes England will be appointing a contractor to demolish the building. This is likely to happen during September and they say disruption and disturbance to local residents will be minimised.

The community engagement exercise ends on Friday 28th August. The draft masterplan will be published for consultation next month and a planning application is expected to be lodged with Bristol City Council in January, with a decision by next July.

If approved, Homes England will look to appoint a developer next November and work could start by October 2022.
