Gas Works site, Anchor Road, Bristol

30 August 2016: progress on the Brandon Yard redevelopment plans.
Discussions with planning officers at Bristol City Council have continued over the summer, and design proposals are taking shape by a new developer who has bought the site. They have had “constructive meetings” with neighbouring residents’ associations.
They held a public exhibition of the latest plans at the Harbourside Pavilion (above Spitfire Barbeque Restaurant) at Hannover Quay, Harbourside on the 13th of September.

The Bristol-based Soil Association has announced it is putting together a planning application which will eventually see it moving into the historic gasworks on the northern side of the harbour. The multi-million plans will see the conversion of the derelict site into a modern office along with a new café, flats and art gallery. The charity, which champions organic food, has been hoping to move into a new headquarters for more than three years and already owns the site.
