Key opportunities and challenges
Within the wider Temple Quarter and St Philip’s Marsh area, the 100ha Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone has several key sites. A spatial framework has been created to illustrate how it might develop in future
Enterprise zones were set up by the government to drive local growth, and offer a range of incentives to businesses, such as business rates relief, simplified planning and super-fast broadband.
The project will be delivered in two phases:
Development in Bristol Temple Quarter around Bristol Temple Meads station, primarily within the boundaries of the existing Enterprise Zone.
Deliver development value of £845 million
Create 2,500 new homes and 2,200 direct jobs by 2032
Generate around 150 construction jobs in the infrastructure works and 600 construction jobs in the related development.
Regeneration of St. Philip’s Marsh to the east of the station, totalling 65 hectares.
Strategic flood resilience infrastructure is required to address key site constraints in St Philip’s Marsh to enable new jobs and significant housing. Bristol City Council has worked with the Environment Agency to create the Bristol Avon Flood Strategy which will unlock several strategic sites including Temple Quarter. An initial £88m funding has been identified to support the first phase of flood resilience infrastructure with a further £128m required to deliver the full scheme.
