And there are a further 5,555 new homes that have either been proposed by developers with plans revealed but not yet formally submitted to the planning authority, or are the subject of developer or council-led consultation about major regeneration projects.

The site of the former railway sidings in Ashton
Controversial plans for 220 homes at a former railway depot in Ashton Gate were approved last year despite fears a “scary” shared cycle/pedestrian path is too narrow. Bristol city councillors granted permission for nine buildings between three and five storeys at Clanage Road, just off the Brunel Way flyover, after hearing half of the flats will be affordable. But because the apartments will be only one- and two-bedroom, residents fear it will exclude many families from moving in and create “slums of the future” rather than a balanced community. Work is now underway.

Plans for Plot 5 of Bedminster Green, around the green itself
The controversial project will transform BS3 in what will be South Bristol's biggest regeneration project. The project will ultimately see five plots of land around Malago Road and the St Catherine’s Place shopping centre developed with up to 2,000 homes, with some of the buildings up to 16 storeys high. Three of the five sites have already been given planning permission, one has been refused and council planners will decide on an application for the fifth site in the coming months of 2022. But work to transform two of the sites has already begun, and Bristol City Council has also begun two and a half years of work to link the 'Bedminster Green' area to the 'District Heat Network', and to improve the main road for cyclists, buses and pedestrians, paving the way literally for the influx of thousands of new people to the area of Bedminster between the railway line and the area's 'High Street'. Luckwell Road Work has been going on to build 67 affordable flats on this old industrial site next to Bedminster's climbing centre for more than a year now. Old Tobacco Factory One of the longer term developments, the site between the old tobacco factory number 1 and Asda in Bedminster is rapidly taking shape now. A total of 156 homes are being built at the site.

The proposals are to build 40 homes at a light industrial site in Ashton Gate. These would include a six-storey building and seven three storey-townhouses. The plans were initially knocked back by councillors for having a separate “poor door” entrance to the affordable flats, but were approved at the second attempt. Argos
