You’ve just one more day to go and view Bath & North East Somerset Council’s plans for the development of Bath Quays North. They will be on display at Green Park Station from 10am to 2pm Saturday, November 11th.
Bath Quays is the Council’s flagship regeneration project to create a new and vibrant commercial quarter for Bath’s flourishing businesses in the heart of the city. Bath Quays North, located on the existing Avon Street car park and coach park, is a major part of the scheme.
A Bath Quays North Masterplan has been developed and plans for the site include the delivery of around 200,000 sq ft of new office space, creating up to 1,900 new jobs, a minimum of 70 new homes for local people and a new, modern basement car park.
Councillor Tim Warren (Conservative, Mendip) Leader of the Council said:
“The Bath Quays project is a key part of our wider vision of creating a vibrant, prosperous city with flourishing local businesses, job opportunities for our residents, and new homes for people to live. Bath Quays will be the biggest office development ever undertaken in Bath and the largest building project since construction of the Southgate.
Bath Quays will be the biggest office development ever undertaken in Bath and the largest building project since construction of the Southgate Shopping Centre. It’s very important local people have a say on our plans and help shape this exciting development. It will not only provide much-needed office space and homes but also breathe new life into the area.”

The Bath Quays North application is an important step forward in the Council’s economic strategy to create jobs and opportunities for local people.
Outline planning consent for the site will soon be sought and as part of the process, the Council would like to gain feedback on the scheme prior to the submission of the planning application.
At each session, there will be an architectural model and display boards outlining the plans and members of the public will be able to put forward their views and comments.
Plans and an online consultation will also be available on the Council’s website by 6th November until 13th November atwww.bathnes.gov.uk/bathquays
