South West focus: Regeneration of Filton Airfield, Bristol

This transformative project in South Gloucestershire will deliver 2,675 homes, as well as office and industrial workplaces for 9,000 people on the historic airfield site. The 142 hectare development will also provide new town and local centres, primary and secondary schools, a new railway station, strategic cycle infrastructure, an extension to the West of England MetroBus network and a destination park. The site lies at the heart of the Cribbs Patchway New Neighbourhood allocation, which will provide around 5,000 new homes, one of the biggest regeneration projects in the area for over a decade.

We worked closely with the masterplan team, which was led by Allies and Morrison, and included Grant Associates (landscape architects) and Peter Brett Associates (engineering), to shape the movement strategy and develop street design concepts for the site that focused on provision for active travel.

Having acquired the site in 2015, YTL Developments (UK) achieved consent for the outline planning application in October..
