Major Southwest development in the works

A new development is set to potentially contain Southwest England’s largest urban park for 50 years.

Based near the border of South Gloucestershire and Bristol, Brabazon Park will be part of wider plans that will include 2,600 new properties, three brand-new schools to cope with the influx of families to the area and 62 acres of employment space.

The housing developments will be constructed on land once used by Filton Airfield, which distinguished itself when employed in the development of the Concorde. Today, it is considered among the UK most expansive brownfield sites, and since 2015, it has been the property of YTL Developments.

Architects in Chester, Bristol and other key UK cities often work closely with developers, designing plans and handling any amendments required by local authorities. Professional architects can even communicate directly with council planners, helping facilitate a smooth passage through the application process and increasing the chance of a green light being awarded to schemes.

YTL Developments’ Seb Loyn commented on the plans to the BBC:

“With the new YTL Arena Complex now fully approved, our delivery plans are stepping up a gear. Brabazon Park will be the largest new urban public park to be created in the South West in the last 50 years and a key interface between the arena and the new neighbourhood.”

The new park will form an important interface between the properties and the new YTL Arena Complex planned for the development. The structure received planning approval in April last year, and it is expected to become the UK’s third biggest arena, after those based in Manchester and London.
