A new place to live and work
Longer term, the aspiration for St Philip’s Marsh is to create a series of sustainable mixed-use neighbourhoods that are integrated with the surrounding east Bristol communities and within walking distance of Temple Meads station.
Investment in strategic flood resilience infrastructure will unlock the potential to redevelop St Philip’s Marsh with climate resilience built in from the beginning.
Future engagement with communities, businesses and other stakeholders will help inform the final detail for St Philip’s Marsh and Mead Street in the Development Framework.
The St Philip’s Marsh development will be based on several guiding principles:
1 Creative and high tech innovation
The area’s close proximity to the new Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus will nurture a creative and knowledge-based economy of small and medium sized businesses providing jobs and inclusive growth.
2 Sustainable neighbourhoods
Mixed-density residential-led neighbourhoods which support healthy communities and facilitate low-carbon lifestyles. A wide range of employment spaces would be carefully integrated into the development.
3 Avon Greenway and Feeder Canal
New waterside green infrastructure with inbuilt flood defences will be integrated into an area with a mix of uses, including housing and commercial, alongside quality open spaces and pedestrian and cycle routes, helping to bring more greenery and nature into this urban environment. New bridges will connect St Philip’s Marsh to surrounding communities.
