In 2016, the South Gloucestershire Council granted Ashfield Land the planning permission for the £100 million-office project behind the Bristol Parkway station. This 163,000 square feet-project is known as The Approach.
The original planning permission already expired thus the developers resubmitted another one with generally the same content. Fortunately, the scheme has been renewed.
Currently, they are preparing the location on the road of Hunts Ground.
The site which is opposite the Stoke Gifford Park & Ride is the former home of ISG offices at Parklands. The old structures were vacated in the spring of 2017. Since then, it has been utilized by the Network Rail to support the installation of electric wires in the railway lines.
Ashfield Land has been advertising the building as a corporate headquarters and was able to gather promising leads.
The scheme is projected to provide roughly 2,000 employment opportunities to the community.
They are also proposing a car park with 525 spaces for cars wherein 21 will be for disabled users. 250 spaces will also be allotted for cycles and 20 shower cubicles will be placed on site.
The developer is confident that the development will become attractive to the business industry. The site offers perfect access to the Bristol Parkway as well as to the new Metrobus service.
In fact, Ashfield Land’s Director James Digby highly believes that The Approach is the most excellent in terms of connectivity and has the greatest consented office structure in the South West.
He and his team are anticipating a large influx of occupiers and investors to partner with them. They are eager to bring about a massive restoration of the site.
For the past months, they have been enthusiastically promoting this first-rate opportunity to the public.
As of today, there are no fixed details when the site construction will take place neither any information regarding its projected completion.
