The transformation of Bristol Temple Quarter and St Philip’s Marsh is one of the UK’s largest regeneration projects.

Our vision is to transform over 130 hectares of brownfield land over the next 25 years into a thriving, well-connected mixed-use community. The regeneration will create 10,000 new homes, 22,000 new jobs and bring £1.6bn annual income to the city economy.

Tackling the challenges posed by the climate crisis and a changing employment landscape head-on the regeneration will put  sustainable homes and jobs at the heart of the city, alongside new green spaces and a 24/7 economy, where visitors and residents can live, work and play.

Temple Quarter sits at the heart of Bristol, one of the UK’s most productive and fast-growing regions. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Bristol’s thriving economy contributed £15bn to the UK economy each year, and the city is the focal point of the West of England’s £28bn economy.

A refurbished Temple Meads Station will build on its role as the region’s largest transport hub. Work will preserve the heritage of Brunel’s stunning station while creating a gateway to the city fit for the 21st century. Public transport, walking and cycling will all be made easier, creating a greener, well-connected community.

Communities and businesses  – new and existing – will co-exist within residential, commercial, leisure and cultural areas, supporting a thriving 24-hour economy that works for everyone.

To make this happen we will be ambitious and work together. The project partners, Bristol City Council, West of England Combined Authority (WECA), Network Rail and Homes England have come together to create this vision  and we want Bristol citizens to help shape the future of the Temple Quarter and St Philip’s Marsh.
