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 regeneration – early engagement

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.

Engagement with local communities and businesses will inform planning principles and guidance.  These will guide any future developments that come forward for the area.

Please take a look at the emerging guiding principles and early concept ideas for Mead Street and give us your feedback via the survey link: Mead Street Regeneration survey

Closing date 19 December 2021.

We are hosting face-to-face early engagement events for local people to help inform planning principles and guidance that will help shape future development around Mead Street. If you are a local resident or business and would like to attend, the details are:

  • 22 and 23 November, 3.30-7.30pm each day at LPW House, Princess Street, Bedminster, BS3 4AG. Covid secure measures will be in place.

Further engagement and consultation will take place in 2022 as the Temple Quarter and St Philip’s Marsh project progresses.
