We are proposing to build new homes, a secondary school and commercial space in the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone
What is proposed?

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

The plans include the delivery of a new comprehensive school for Bristol, as well as purpose-built student accommodation, approximately 500 new dwellings (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.

Where is the site?

The site is located in the Bristol Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone, to the south of Silverthorne Lane and to the north of the Feeder Canal. The extent of the proposed development site is highlighted on the interactive map below.

The site is currently occupied by warehouses and industrial buildings, many of which are dilapidated. There are also some ruined historic buildings on site which would be retained and restored as part of the regeneration plans.

Why 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 existing buildings on the site are at the end of their useful life with the current operations on site due to cease in Spring/Summer 2019.

What stage is it at?

Feeder Estates LLP is currently preparing an outline planning application for the site and is currently in pre-application discussions with Bristol City Council and a number of other interested parties.

We are also in initial discussions with a number of potential tenants and operators for the buildings that we are proposing, and hope to make a further announcement on this in the near future.

This website will be updated with images, plans and information as we progress towards a planning application. Please register below for updates and news about the emerging proposals to regenerate this city centre site.


Our proposals include:
  • Circa 500 new dwellings, including affordable homes
  • A site for a new comprehensive school, which will be delivered by the Oasis Academy Trust and the Department for Education (DfE)
  • New purpose-build student accommodation
  • New commercial space
  • New pedestrian and cycle routes, as well new areas of open public space
