News Town council grants awarded in April
Revised planning application for Filton Airfield A REVISED outline planning application has been submitted for the redevelopment of the former Filton Airfield, which ceased operations in December 2012. A previous planning application for the site was put forward by then-owners BAE Systems in October 2014 and South Gloucestershire Council agreed to “resolve to approve” the application subject to the signing of S106 agreements requiring the developer to make financial contributions to local infrastructure schemes. As BAE Systems did not intend to develop the site itself, it did not sign the S106 agreements, and the airfield was later sold to YTL, a Malaysia-based infrastructure investor, in late 2015. The new planning application brought forward by YTL retains the original headline parameters of 2,675 residential dwellings and 24ha of stand-alone employment land, however it now proposes a “linear park” along the axis of the old airfield runway and a new town centre featuring “buildings of up to 10 storeys and a single tall building of up to 30 storeys”. The revised planning application, reference PT14/3867/O, may be viewed online at www.southglos.gov.uk/planning or in hard copy at Patchway One Stop Shop, The Patchway Hub, Rodway Road, Patchway BS34 5PE.
