What it means for Bristol
Frome Gateway – identified in Bristol’s Local Plan Review as an Area of Growth and Regeneration – has the potential to provide roughly 1,000 new homes, employment and community space, and improved public spaces, including a restored River Frome.
Regeneration of this key arrival point into the city centre will transform the mainly industrial site into a mixed-use riverfront neighbourhood within walking distance of the heart of Bristol, addressing the pressing need for new homes and jobs, and enhancing local identity and improving connections to surrounding neighbourhoods. Regeneration will provide a strategic contribution to the city’s response to the climate and ecological emergencies including the ambition to be a carbon neutral city by 2030.
To ensure regeneration is values led the Frome Gateway plans sit within wider strategic aims including the One City Economic Recovery and Renewal Plan. This should focus public policy, action and the delivery of place change that works for all.
