We recognise that that there is significant interest in the development at a local, citywide and regional level. We also recognise that there are active local communities, businesses and organisations that have already been involved in the early stages of developing ideas and concepts and who have an ongoing interest in planning the future of Bristol Temple Quarter and St Philip’s Marsh.

Mead Street engagement and consultation

Mead Street is recognised in the emerging Temple Quarter and St Philip’s Marsh Development Framework as an area of mixed use including new homes, workspaces, transport routes and open space close to a new proposed southern entrance to Temple Meads station. The area is well-connected, within walking distance of the station and the city centre, making it a good place to build homes, supporting the city’s drive to reduce carbon and promote sustainable travel choices.

Feedback from engagement with local communities and businesses on emerging planning principles and guidance for development in Meads Street in late 2021/early 2022 has informed a draft Development Brief for the area. A consultation on the draft Development Brief closed on Monday 4 July. The updated Development Brief will now go to Bristol City Council’s Cabinet for endorsement on Tuesday 2 August.
