Wapping Wharf North: update October 2023

North Plot, Wapping Wharf, Wapping Road Bristol BS1 4RH

Bristol Civic Society objects to this proposed development.

The Society has fundamental objections to the design of the development proposed for North Plot which cannot be resolved without a fundamental redesign.

In our view this is a ‘special place’, a particularly key part of Harbourside where views and context are especially relevant. We question the justification for a landmark building – at 10 storeys this is far too high and has no meaningful relationship to the existing Wapping Wharf development.

The proposed development would have a particularly negative impact on the silhouette of the harbour cranes, which are a significant feature of this part of Bristol’s Harbourside.
