YTL Arena Bristol parking and travel information sharing

What we want to know

The development of the new YTL Arena Bristol, alongside the re-development of the former Filton airfield, will really put our area on the map, creating new jobs and bringing forward building of much needed new homes on this brownfield site.

This is an exciting new development for the area, but as with any facility of this scale, there will be an impact on transport and potentially on parking in areas around the arena. With the arena expected to open its doors in a few years’ time, we have started planning for what impact this will have and how this might be managed, so everyone can enjoy this new facility.

We therefore want to understand from you how and when you currently travel in the area and what parking requirements you have.

As part of their planning permissions for the new arena and wider airfield development, the developers committed to helping to mitigate the impact of increased traffic movements in the area. This included:

  • Providing an on-site car park
  • Funding for improved public transport
  • A park and ride and a shuttle bus service
  • Funding for improved walking and cycling routes
  • Funding for consultation and implementation of arena parking management measures.

How your feedback will be used

Through this information sharing exercise, we want to tell you what we know about the development and what we think its potential impact could be (see links to information below). In return, we would like to understand from you how and when you currently travel in the area and what parking requirements you have.

The information you provide will help us with our traffic modelling and parking management planning. We want to identify potential issues early, so we can design measures to mitigate and address potential concerns.

There will be public consultation where you will be able to have your say on our proposals for parking management. The timescales for the consultation will be confirmed later this year.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
