Toby Savage, leader of South Gloucestershire Council, visited the site in January when we began to dig the first foundations at Brabazon. He joined us once again to mark the topping out.
"Brabazon is set to transform the local area and is a wakeup call to the big housebuilders on what new development can look like and deliver for communities. The most exciting thing is that this will be a really thriving new neighbourhood, not just another housing project. There will be public parks, schools, community facilities and new transport links," said Cllr Savage. "And at the heart of it will be the incredible new YTL Arena. For so many it's going to be the most exciting place to be in the South West."
Set over 380 acres, the transformation of the former Filton Airfield into Brabazon is the largest development in Bristol’s recent history. In time you’ll be able to wander around independent stores, discover new restaurants or relax in the parks and green spaces. There will also be world-class events, exhibitions and the best in live music at the recently-approved YTL Arena Bristol. Everything that is new and exciting in Bristol is just a stone’s throw away the new homes at Brabazon.
