With demolition of the former Royal Mail Sorting Office well underway, we’re ready to progress with the next stages of the planning process.
Since we secured outline planning permission in July 2018, we have continued to work with communities, businesses, the West of England Combined Authority and Bristol City Council to shape our plans. Phase one of the public consultation will run from 11 April to 1 May 2019 and will include the detailed design of the student residential accommodation. We’ll also take the opportunity to show an update on the proposed layout of the entire site.
There are a number of ways for you to share your views. All information will be available online from 11 April and you can come along to one of the following meetings or drop-in sessions.
- Tuesday 16 April, 5-7.30pm at Barton Hill Settlement, 43 Ducie Road, Bristol BS5 0AX
- Tuesday 16 April, 12-2pm & Thursday 25 April, 1-3pm at Engine Shed, Station Approach, Bristol BS1 6QH
- Wednesday 17 April, 5-7.30pm & Thursday 25 April, 5-7pm at Hannah More School, New Kingsley Road, Bristol BS2 0LT
- Saturday 27 April, 2-4pm at Windmill Hill City Farm, Philip Street, Bristol BS3 4EA
In the meantime, take a look at how much the site has changed since demolition began two months ago:
This first phase of public consultation will be followed by a second phase in the summer—this will focus on the academic buildings and public spaces.
