UK’s largest regeneration project

The transformation of Bristol Temple Quarter and St Philip’s Marsh is one of the UK’s largest regeneration projects. The revival of 130 hectares of brownfield land over the next 25 years is expected to create up to 10,000 new homes, 22,000 jobs and bring £1.6 billion to the city economy each year.

Proposals for the Temple Quarter development, centered on the refurbishment of Bristol Temple Meads station, include mixed-use residential-led developments at Temple Gate and Temple Island; the University of Bristol’s Enterprise Campus; and multiple development sites including around Silverthorne Island and Cattle Market Road.

At St Philip’s Marsh, the plans for which are at an early stage, the aspiration is to create a series of sustainable mixed-use neighborhoods that carefully integrate jobs and a mix of employment opportunities with residential areas. All of which will be linked with their surrounding east Bristol communities and within walking distance of the station.

Developments will be based on the guiding principles of creativity and high-tech innovation, sustainable neighborhoods, and green infrastructure, including inbuilt flood defenses along the Avon Greenway and Feeder Canal. New developments will feature easier walking and cycling and local amenities. By creating a mix of uses for the area, the council hopes to create jobs and a day-night economy that shares the benefits with new and existing communities in and around the area.
