Help us shape the future of Bristol’s city centre

Bristol City Council is working with local residents, businesses, landowners, developers and other stakeholders to guide the long-term regeneration of central Bristol.

The Bristol City Centre Development and Delivery Plan (the Plan for short) looks ahead to 2050.  It will consider what needs to happen to ensure Bristol’s city centre is fit for the future and will set out a set by step guide to help us get there.  It will involve thinking big about the potential long-term changes to buildings, spaces and streets and the way these are used in order to support a thriving city centre in the context of the current climate and ecological emergency, economic and social pressures.

The Plan will cover a large area of central Bristol, extending from Marlborough Street and Bond Street in the north, to Castle Park in the south. The study area includes The Galleries, Fairfax Street, Callowhill Court, Haymarket and the former Debenhams store (some of which are already subject to development proposals from private developers) as well as the area around St James Barton roundabout. Within this area, the Plan will look at ways to retain and enhance Castle Park and St James’ Park as important open spaces.

This is a long-term project continuing on from the City Centre Framework adopted in 2020 and we are just starting to gather informal feedback to guide this study.  There will be many more opportunities to get involved over the year. 

Our next event will be an in-person community workshop in the city centre. For more information on our events, and to register interest in a session, check our programme.
