Drawing on the results of this consultation the Carriageworks Action Group is due to agree a final Community Vision at its meeting on 15 December.
In the spring, Bristol City Council will prepare a ‘development brief’ for the site, drawing on the Community Vision. Later in 2012 the development brief will be used to invite interest from a wide range of developers so that we can select the one that will best respond to the Vision.
The selection process will involve representatives of the Action Group and the City Council.
The selected developer will take the scheme forward in partnership with the Council and the local community. This will include purchase of the site if necessary using compulsory purchase powers.
Please be aware that any redevelopment of the site is likely to take some years.
Comer Homes Group
The site is currently owned by Comer Homes. They have applied for planning permission to build 183 flats on the site together with shops and parking. If their application is successful they could progress with the development. We hope that they would then work with the community and help deliver our Vision.
