The scheme at Emersons Green East in South Gloucestershire will include two new primary schools, a secondary school and other community infrastructure alongside up to 2,550 new homes and 100,000 square metres of employment floor space.

The scheme represents the final stage in the Emersons Green development and is a key element in the development of the East Fringe area of South Gloucestershire.

As well as significant new provision for employment and homes, the site will feature new transport infrastructure including a major new Park and Ride facility, a new footbridge over the Avon Ring Road and a network of new footways and cycleways.

The scheme will also include a range of on-site public open space facilities, including playing fields, multi-use games area and an all-weather sports pitch.

Chair of the council’s Development Control East committee Colin Hunt said: “We are pleased that this long awaited development has now started and will bring a much needed, high quality mix of homes to one of the region’s Enterprise Areas, complementing the rise in employment and investment in Emersons Green.”

Contractor Britannia is already on site preparing for formal commencement of work on 24 June.
