FAQs

What is happening?

The proposals include the demolition of the Avon Street car park and former coach park site which will be redeveloped into mixed use that will transform the site with new employment opportunities, new homes (including 35% affordable), a hotel and new amenities for the local community and visitors to the city.

The site will be developed in two distinct phases; the core of the Avon Street car park site being developed as Phase 1, and the former coach park site being developed as Phase 2 (subject to
market conditions).

Who is responsible for the site?

Legal & General Capital has entered a Development and Regeneration Agreement with the B&NES Council.

The Council owns the freehold of the site and Legal & General will be granted a long lease for each phase as it comes forward.

The site will be developed by Bell Hammer, a property development company delivering high quality places in London, the South East and Bristol.

Why does the site need to be redeveloped?

Bath Quays North forms part of B&NES’ plans for the Bath Quays Development. It is a significant redevelopment and regeneration project located in a key position in the Bath City Riverside Enterprise Zone. The adopted Bath Placemaking Plan sets out the importance of regenerating this site in order to bring forward a new mixed-use development.
