Planning permission secured for redevelopment of former Filton Airfield
Outline planning permission has today (1 March 2018) been issued by South Gloucestershire Council for the redevelopment of the former Filton Airfield by the site owner, YTL Developments (UK) Ltd.
The consent includes the development of up to 2,675 dwellings, 24 hectares of employment land, two primary schools and a secondary school, community facilities, provision for a new rail station and significant public open space / sports facilities.
Alder King Planning Consultants submitted the initial outline application on behalf of the original site owners BAE Systems but were retained by YTL upon purchase of the site to submit amendments to the scheme and negotiate with the Council to secure a consent.
Simon Fitton, partner and head of planning, said “We are pleased to be involved in this exciting project which will transform a significant area of north Bristol. It will combine new homes with a celebration of aero heritage, new employment opportunities and community infrastructure, into a new neighbourhood at the gateway into Bristol.
“It will benefit existing communities through the provision of new road and public transport infrastructure that will enable much enhanced movement across what has historically been a barrier for north/south connectivity.”
