Ashton Gate’s vision is to create a world-class Sporting Quarter for the city of Bristol.

A two-site development consisting of a new urban village development of approximately 500 homes, named “Longmoor” and Ashton Gate’s Sporting Quarter development just 500m apart, linked by the metrobus route and shared cycle/pedestrian paths.

The delivery of the metrobus route has changed the context of this land, moving the urban boundary. As a result, the Council has already reviewed the contribution this land makes to the Green Belt and has concluded that it no longer serves the purposes of functional Green Belt land. As a result, the land has been proposed for removal from the Green Belt and allocated for residential development of approximately 500 units (draft Regulation 18 Local Plan consulted on in 2019).

Driven by our desire to use sport to change people’s lives for the better; strengthening the city’s sporting prowess from the highest professional levels to grass roots community sports. Development that is driven by participation in sport and promotes healthy active lifestyles.

Longmoor development summary:

The Longmoor site is currently enclosed between the David Lloyd Gym and Cala Trading Estate to the north and the Metrobus route to the south west

Longmoor will provide approximately 500 much-needed residential homes

The scheme will consist of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom units in a high-quality urban village environment

The scheme will include affordable housing to help meet local need

The tallest buildings will be five storeys and whilst the layout is not fixed at outline stages, broad locations for the tallest buildings will ensure that height is located away from Ashton Vale 

Longmoor is in a highly sustainable location with the metrobus m2 route passing directly by towards the city centre and Bristol Temple Meads
