Frome Gateway Regeneration

Bristol City Council, is working in partnership with the local community to guide and shape the long-term transformation of the land either side of the River Frome in St Jude’s, between Cabot Circus car park and junction 3 of the M32. To do this, we’ve produced a Regeneration Framework to create a long-term vision and strategy for change in this area of proposed regeneration, which is called Frome Gateway.

The ambition for this part of St Jude’s is to create new homes, jobs and public spaces that better meet the needs of the city and the local community. You can read more about the project here

Working with business

We worked with the community to develop and refine a set of Community Place Principles to define community priorities. You can read the Community Place Principles for Frome Gateway here.

Using the Community Place Principles and what we’ve learned about the community and the area, we’ve now developed a draft Frome Gateway Regeneration Framework, to describe how the area could change over the coming years. You can read the full document here.
