Consultation on proposed design for St Bernadette’s Rugby Club new facilities on Fulford Road, Hartcliffe

Closed 20 Nov 2019

Opened 6 Nov 2019

Feedback expected 4 Dec 2019


St Bernadette’s Old Boys Rugby and Football Club (RFC) is relocating from Hengrove Park to a new home on Fulford Road in Hartcliffe. Bristol City Council is working with the club on the move and in September appointed Kier (Regional) and Inspire Architects to design new rugby facilities, which include a new, modern clubhouse, high-quality rugby pitches and flood lighting. This consultation seeks to inform the design prior to a planning application whilst promoting the Club’s relocation to Hartcliffe to potential new members and visitors to the Club.

Why We Are Consulting

Designs showing how a new south Bristol rugby club could look have been unveiled for public consultation. These can be downloaded at the bottom of this webpage, or viewed in the foyer of @Symes community building on Peterson Ave, BS13 0BE.

The Council, Club and design team want to hear views on the proposed design to inform and shape the proposed development prior to submitting a planning application.
