Taylor Wimpey prepared proposals for a new residential development of approximately 180 homes on land off Cossham Street, Mangotsfield, Bristol in 2009.

  • Overview

    Land off Cossham Street

    We submitted proposals for a new residential development of approximately 180 new homes in 2009 following public consultation with local people.

    We own the proposed development site which we believe remains suitable for housing.

    The 2009 outline application was turned down by South Gloucestershire Council in February 2010 and an appeal was lodged in March 2010  but subsequently withdrawn without being determined.

    We will continue to promote the site through a future Local Plan review process and hold further local engagement and consultation with stakeholders and residents.

  • About the site

    The development site


    Site Plan

    Our proposed development site. Click to enlarge.

    The proposed development site is located between Cossham Street and Rodway Hill Road, Mangotsfield.

    Although the site is currently part of the Green Belt which surrounds Bristol, it lies well within the A4174 ring road that forms a substantial physical boundary to the east of the urban area and is also surrounded by existing urban development.



    Directly to the east of the site lies Cleve Rugby Club, while on the site’s northern boundary is Mangotsfield Football Club. Mangotsfield School is situated to the south, while existing residential housing off Rodway Hill Road is found to the west.



    The site is well located for access to existing facilities, including shops, schools and public transport. The main access to the site is proposed via Cossham Street, with additional pedestrian and cycle access from Rodway Hill Road.



    The proposed development site is located in Flood Zone 1 (the lowest level of risk) and is therefore suitable for new development. A Sustainable Drainage Scheme (SuDS) will ensure the rate of surface water run-off is no greater than current levels.



    The site currently comprises rough grassland and scrub with existing trees and hedgerows along its boundaries, and it is proposed to introduce additional native planting to enhance the habitat value of the space.

    Our proposals


    Land Use

    Proposed land uses and access routes for our proposed scheme

    The 2009 planning application proposals included:


    • Approximately 180 new homes
    • New public open space, including a children's play area
    • Upgraded pedestrian and cycle links
    • New native planting to enhance the ecology of the site


    Local people and stakeholders were also invited to a public consultation exhibition on 11th September 2009 at Cleve Rugby Club, and feedback and comments from this process influenced the planning application submitted to South Gloucestershire Council.


    Further consultation with local people and stakeholders will be carried out and we anticipate that a completely revised set of proposals will emerge in due course.




  • Community

    Local contributions

    We will provide a number of contributions towards the local community as part of the proposed development. Details of these contributions will be agreed with the relevant local authorities at a later stage.
