Brislington Meadows housing proposals

Earlier this year, outline planning permission was granted for up to 260 homes on Brislington Meadows. The plans include high quality landscaping, 30% affordable housing and a commitment to delivering a 10% increase in biodiversity.

The site was allocated for housing by Bristol City Council in 2014 and the plans respond to the significant need for housing in the city. The site is considered to be in a highly sustainable location, close to local shops, community facilities, employment areas and public transport. infrastructure. 

A Reserved Matters application is expected to follow in late 2024 and we will be issuing updates in due course.
