Have your say on the future of Brislington Meadows

Homes England would like to invite you to their public consultation events for Brislington Meadows in December. The online and in person events will provide a chance to learn more about the outline plans, view the illustrative masterplan, ask questions and provide feedback. 

Brislington Meadows was allocated for housing in Bristol City Council’s 2014 Local Plan, to help address Bristol’s acute housing shortage. Homes England was brought in last year to help deliver those homes. 

Over the last 18 months we’ve been getting a better understanding of the constraints, challenges and opportunities here; listening to comments and feedback and working on a masterplan which we are now ready to share. 

We’d like to thank everyone who has been in touch so far. The feedback has helped identify key themes and priorities such as: the importance of nature and open space, the need for housing for local people, the need to invest in public/active travel to help address congestion and air quality, and the importance of integrating this development into the Broomhill community, including new investment that will be brought to local services, businesses and other infrastructure in the area.
