Have your say on the future of Brislington Meadows
As a government agency, Homes England has responsibility for accelerating new residential development, to help meet the much recognised local and national need for new homes, improve neighbourhoods and grow communities.

At Brislington Meadows, in line with the Bristol City Council planning allocation for the site, Homes England is starting to consult on plans for up to 300 homes, 90 affordable. Key priorities for the scheme are quality, homes for Brislington people, urban ecology, climate change and great place making.

The professional team are still at the early stage, carrying out technical surveys and starting to build a better picture of the constraints and opportunities. This, together with the community suggestions we have been receiving, will help underpin the parameters and inform the emerging masterplan options.

Key themes from the feedback received includes the importance of ecology, homes for local people, consideration to neighbours; that this mustn’t be a concrete jungle; and questions around how roads, schools and doctors will cope. We are looking at all of this.

We are a bit behind our original schedule and now looking to start the main consultation in the Spring. If you have any questions or suggestions in the meantime, please do get in touch.
Annual grass cutting Fri 24th Sep 2021 at 12:35

Routine annual grass cutting will be taking place over the next couple of weeks, the timing will be subject to weather conditions. The grass cutting is required to maintain the current extent of grassland and prevent excessive scrub encroachment. The work is being done late in the season to reduce the risk of disturbing reptiles. It will include leaving uncut buffers and retaining shelter habitats for slow worms and invertebrates.
