Friday 11th July is the last day for the public to comment on the South Gloucestershire Core Strategy (Issues and Options). The document outlines plans for the future development of the district following proposals from the South West Regional Assembly (SWRA) which could result in the building of nearly 31,000 new homes within South Gloucestershire by 2026.
Several of the planned development areas are close to Bradley Stoke, with major schemes at Northfield (Filton) (2,200 dwellings), Harry Stoke (1,200 dwellings) and Wallscourt Farm (Abbey Wood) (900 dwellings).
An appendix to the plan [PDF, 2.9MB] also outlines two options for further development along the M32 corridor (marked by blue circles in the centre of the image above), in an area that stretches from the A4174 (Avon Ring Road) in the south to the B4057 (Winterbourne Road) near the Vantage Business Park in the north. The appendix suggests that between 2,700 and 3,300 dwellings could be built in this area.
Responses to the consultation may be made using an online questionnaire (registration required), by post or by email.
