The Society’s Major Sites Group engages with major building development proposals, mostly in the city centre. The Group takes part in the public consultation stage, before the planning application for major schemes. This is one of the Society’s most important roles.
- meets developers, planning officers and other interest groups to try to improve complex major developments.
- initiates campaigns, prepares written representations, and appears at Planning Enquiries.
- may generate ideas to develop and improve particular sites.
- works with other local planning groups, and if asked helps them to gain skills in dealing with major sites.
For other examples of the group’s views on current developments, see Planning Issues.
Join the group
New group members are always welcome. An enthusiasm for Bristol’s built environment is all that is needed, you don’t require professional expertise. Please contact the group’s chair – see Contacts.
