Overview

The council is proposing modifications to the Bristol Central Area Plan, Publication Version (February 2014).

This Local Plan document contains policies the council will use when considering planning applications in central Bristol. It identifies sites to provide new homes, jobs, shops and community uses up to 2026. It safeguards sites for important uses such as open space and transport infrastructure.

The changes have arisen from representations received and the examination of the Publication Version, including public hearings held in October 2014.

Representations on the proposed modifications may now be made. They will be considered by the Planning Inspector examining the document.

Why We Are Consulting

Consultation on the proposed modifications provides the opportunity for representations to be made.

All representations received will be considered by the Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State to carry out the examination into the soundness and legal compliance of the Bristol Central Area Plan.

What Happens Next

All representations received will be considered by the inspector carrying out the examination of the Bristol Central Area Plan.

The council will also summarise the main issues raised by the representations and submit that summary to the inspector, along with an officer response to the issues raised.

 The Inspector’s Report into the soundness and legal compliance of the Bristol Central Area Plan is anticipated in early 2015.

If found ‘sound’ by the inspector the Bristol Central Area Plan will be adopted by the council in Spring 2015.
