Proposals for developing the Mead Street area, the development brief, how to have your say about the proposals.


The regeneration of the area around Mead Street is part of the Temple Quarter and St Philip's Marsh regeneration project. This is a project to transform the area around Bristol Temple Meads to create new homes and jobs for Bristol's growing population and economy. 

Our plans

Mead Street is at the north-eastern edge of Bedminster, close to the Bath Bridges Roundabout and Bristol Temple Meads station.

The area has the potential for around 1500 new homes, high quality employment and public spaces, and sustainable travel routes. We want to create a mixed neighbourhood with both homes and businesses. At Mead Street we want to:

  • make a place people want to live and work
  • provide better routes for sustainable travel 
  • create high quality public places
  • provide new green space at the heart of a new neighbourhood 

The regeneration around Mead Street will be based on the principles of our One City Plan. This aims to meet the UN's Sustainable Development Goals by improving:

  • poverty
  • inequality
  • health and wellbeing
  • the environment

The development brief

In late 2021 and early 2022 we talked to the local community and businesses about our ideas for future development in Mead Street. We used the feedback to help us write a draft development brief for the area.  The brief includes:

  • a vision for the regeneration of the area
  • key principles for change
  • other considerations for future change in the area

Have your say

We want to hear your views about the draft development brief, before the consultation closes on Monday 4 July.
