close to each other is an open question. Meanwhile a new planning application has been fielded by a third company, Acerbic, based in Clifton. Acerbic owns a narrow strip of land at the bottom of the railway embankment between Sheene Road and where the Malago river cuts through the embankment. This strip used to be owned by British Rail and was used for a gantry crane. It was never part of the Pring & St Hill factory site, which is now Plot 1. Acerbic wants to place 360 solar panels along the narrow strip, in three rows up to 8m high, to generate electricity. Whether this would affect the viability of Mr O’Brien’s plan for Plot 1 is unclear. Mr O’Brien told the Voice that Urbis Development a planning application would be submitted in December (after the Bedminster Green Voice went to press) for 217 flats in buildings ranging from 6-7 Framework Area Plan

THE PROPOSALS for the redevelopment of Bedminster Green – the large area between East Street and Windmill Hill – has been thrown into confusion by the emergence of several potentially competing plans. First it emerged that Urbis, the company charged by the city council with producing a masterplan for the area, has failed to reach a deal with developer Paul O’Brien, who has bought Plot 1, likely to be the first site to be constructed. This means Urbis is unable to site its proposed district energy centre where it wanted – at the western end of Plot 1, on Malago Road next to the railway line. Instead, Urbis is looking to move the energy centre to another plot – so far undisclosed – on Bedminster Green. Meanwhile Paul O’Brien told the Voice that one of his companies, Rollo Homes, is looking to develop its own energy
