The November 2014 edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine has been dropping on doormats this weekend.
This month’s feature story is the submission of a planning application to build 2,675 new homes on the site of the former Filton Airfield. The site is part of the wider Cribbs/Patchway New Neighbourhood, where a total of 5,700 new homes are expected to be built by 2027, a total which does not include the 2,400 residential properties being constructed within the adjoining Charlton Hayes development (around 700 of which are already completed).
The magazine also includes an in depth feature on the rollout of superfast broadband in Bradley Stoke, in which we try to unravel the confusing and contradictory information being put out by South Gloucestershire Council and BT, which is leading to a great deal of frustration among the thousands of residents who are still hoping to benefit from the project.
Another feature article looks at the shocking state of Bradley Stoke’s bus services, as revealed by the results of an ongoing reader survey conducted on our website. Operator First West of England has provided an extensive set of responses to the issues raised in the survey.
For young people, there’s news that the town’s new £260k skate park is expected to be ready next summer, although not in time for the 2015 Community Festival in June, as had originally been hoped,
We are delighted to include our first business news section, which we hope will become a regular part of the magazine. This month’s stories feature the husband and wife team behind the local Cafe2U franchise, Wards Solicitors, Julian Okoye and Aspirations Financial Advice
Other stories include the selection of the Labour Party’s local candidate for the upcoming general election, the start of construction of Bradley Stoke’s new primary school and a Lions Club honour for a student at Bradley Stoke Community School.
For those who don’t live in Bradley Stoke, you’ll be able to pick up a copy of the town’s number one news magazine at Bradley Stoke Library (from Monday) or read it online (from Sunday evening).
