New Local Plan - North Fringe Cluster.

South Gloucestershire Council’s new Local Plan Consultation Document considers how it can deliver the new homes and jobs that are needed, along with the infrastructure, services and facilities to support sustainable growth in our area up to 2036.

It is holding drop-in sessions, where you will be able to talk to officers, learn more and comment on the local plan. The two closest sessions to our area are:

  • Friday 9th March, 6pm to 8pm, at Coniston Community Centre, Patchway BS34 5LP
  • Thursday 15th March, 4.30pm to 6.45pm, at the St Michael’s Centre, Stoke Gifford BS34 8PD

Full details of the consultation can be viewed at, in the One Stop Shops and in libraries.

A council spokesperson said: “We particularly want to hear your views about Cribbs Causeway, Patchway, the former Filton Airfield, Harry Stoke and Stoke Gifford, and how we can:

  • Create new high quality, mixed use urban environments, to provide more homes and employment opportunities
  • Establish stronger neighbourhoods and district centres
  • Enhance walking, cycling and public transport provisions
  • Build on the existing economic strengths.

‘Drop-in’ consultation event on council’s 13-year detailed planning document

Posted on Monday 14th July 2014 at 10:42 pm by SH (Editor)

South Gloucestershire Council's Policies, Sites and Places Plan.

A ‘drop in’ public consultation event at Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre on Tuesday (15th July) will give residents a chance to express their views on how Bradley Stoke and other parishes across South Gloucestershire should be developed, protected and improved over the next 13 years.

The event focuses on South Gloucestershire Council’s recently-published draft Policies, Sites and Places Plan, which is the final document being prepared by South Gloucestershire Council in completing its new-style ‘Local Plan’.

The draft plan contains policies which cover the following issues:

  • How the council assesses planning applications
  • The development of local town centres
  • Sites for new facilities like new schools and community buildings
  • The protection of important local green spaces
  • Local aspirations for development such as new housing, community and leisure facilities
  • The proposed Oldbury New Nuclear Power Station

Within Bradley Stoke, the draft plan includes provision for a further 5,000 sqm of retail space at the Willow Brook Centre, achieved by building in the car park area north-west of the unit currently occupied by Poundstretcher. It is also proposed that 37 areas of woodland and open space within the town are designated ‘local green space’, which would give them protection against development, except in “very special circumstances”.

The event at Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre takes place between 3pm and 5pm. If you are unable to make this session, there are other events across the district until the end of July, including one in the Old School Hall in Almondsbury on Thursday (17th July), from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

Further information can be found at:

Public consultation on the draft plan runs until 28th August 2014.
