A vibrant new canal-side community, delivering new homes, new employment opportunities and a much-needed new secondary school in Bristol Temple Quarter

What is proposed?

Feeder Estates LLP, a partnership managed by Square Bay, is delivering the comprehensive mixed-use regeneration of land off Silverthorne Lane, Bristol, in the city's Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone.

The plans represent investment of c£375 million into Bristol’s Temple Quarter, and include the delivery of a new comprehensive school for Bristol, as well as purpose-built student accommodation, 367 new homes (including affordable homes) and commercial space.

Square Bay has extensive experience in Bristol, such as enabling the regeneration of Brandon Yard, Bristol Harbourside, which featured the restoration of ruined historic industrial buildings similar to those found at the Silverthorne Lane site.

Why build here?

The site in question is previously developed land in a well-connected location, close to Bristol Temple Meads station and a number of planned future developments. These include Temple Island and a new campus for the University of Bristol.

The site is earmarked for regeneration in Bristol City Council's Vision for the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone.

In June 2018, Bristol City Council and the Department for Education confirmed the site as the location for an urgently needed new comprehensive secondary school to serve central and eastern Bristol.

What's the latest news?

We are delighted that in April 2022 the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities has granted planning permission for our plans to regenerate Silverthorne Lane to deliver a vibrant new canalside community at the gateway to Bristol’s Temple Quarter.

Bristol City Council  had unanimously voted to approve our planning application for the regeneration of the site in August 2020.

We had submitted our planning application for the regeneration of the site to Bristol City Council in August 2019, following nearly two years of pre-application work with planning officers.

Between submitting the planning application and the committee decision, work continued to refine the proposals in response to further feedback from planning officers, as well as comments from statutory consultees.
