The current planning application for the redevelopment of the Memorial Stadium as a supermarket and residential development.
On May 4, 2012, an application for full planning permission was submitted for the demolition of the football stadium and the redevelopment of the site including:
- The erection of a foodstore with undercroft parking.
- 65 residential units (houses and apartments).
- Community floorspace.
- Associated works comprising hard and soft landscaping, enlargement of vehicular access to Filton Avenue and the creation of a mini roundabout on Filton Avenue, involving demolition of No’s 29 and 31 Filton Avenue.
On June 19, 2012, we received revised plans for the proposed development, including alterations to Filton Avenue. You can view and make comments on the revised plans.

This application was reported to the Development Control (North) Committee at their meeting on January 16, 2013. The committee report considered retail, traffic and transport issues in detail.
The members resolved to approve this scheme subject to the legal agreement and conditions set out in the report.
Referral to the Secretary of State
Following on from the committee on January 16, the application was referred on to the Secretary of State as it involves a departure from the Development Plan and over 5,000 sq. m. of retail development in an out-of-centre location.
We await the comments of the Secretary of State.
To renew the time limit on an existing planning permission.
We have received the above application for redevelopment of the Memorial Stadium.
The application is to renew the time limit on an existing planning permission. If you wish to view the plans and drawings you will need to refer to the original application below.
Making comments on a renewal application
When we consider renewal applications we have specific guidelines we have to follow. We can only consider:
- where there have been major changes in policy, and
- other relevant issues ('material considerations'), since we originally granted planning permission.
We cannot revisit old issues which are unchanged.
