This document will be called the ‘Strategic Infrastructure-led Masterplan for the north fringe of Bristol’ and covers the areas; Filton, Cribbs Causeway, Patchway, Bradley Stoke, Stoke Gifford, Harry Stoke, Henbury and Brentry. The masterplan will set out a vision for the area and recommendations for how the vision can be delivered.

To date we have spoken to a number of stakeholders including technical specialists, local councillors, businesses, education providers across the area to understand the key challenges and opportunities that need to be addressed. The work we are now presenting has been built on these conversations; we hope the public engagement activities stated below will provide us the opportunity to present our vision to those who were involved in the process.

As part of this work, we want to hear from residents, businesses, and other members of the community to help us finalise the strategic masterplan, which will set out our aspirations for this area for the next 30 years.

We are running public engagement for six weeks to gather views on:

  • the long-term vision and objectives;
  • illustrations prepared for Cribbs Causeway; UWE / Abbeywood to Stoke Gifford; Aztec West Business Park; Highwood Road; Bradley Stoke and the A38 which demonstrate how the vision might work in key locations across the area;
  • our recommendations for short-term projects.

Further information, including a summary of the strategic masterplan is provided on our engagement webpage www.westofengland-ca.gov.uk/north-fringe/

We’re asking people to give us their views by completing a short survey, either online on our engagement webpage or in a paper format. Paper copies of the survey or any alternative formats can be requested by email or by phone (please contact [email protected] or call 07436 601889). Paper copies of the survey can also be collected at a number libraries – please visit our engagement webpage for more information.

As part of the engagement, we are inviting people to join us at one of our drop in events:

  • Thursday 19 May, 2pm – 6pm, Patchway Community Centre, Rodway Road, Patchway, BS34 5PF
  • Tuesday 24 May, 6pm – 8.30pm, Little Stoke Hall café, Little Stoke Lane, BS34 6HR
