Around 1,300 students will make up around half of the incoming population of Bedminster Green but a smaller percentage of the wider increase in population growth in BS3.

Bedminster Green is a good location for students to live who will be based in the new University of Bristol campus, which is being developed as part of the Temple Quarter regeneration.

Students will have a positive impact on the local economy of East Street, bringing new daily custom to the businesses and boosting the night-time economy.

Bristol City Council will work with Bedminster BID, University of Bristol, local traders, Avon and Somerset Police, and the Bristol Nights team to help develop a diverse range of businesses on East Street, with longer opening hours.

The impact of this will be a safer East Street with more activity at night and a safer high street environment for everyone.

The Whitehouse Street and Bedminster Green regeneration areas are investing significantly in active travel, making it easy for the students living in the area to travel by bus, bike or on foot and not rely on private cars.

There are nine car parking spaces proposed for the student accommodation sites, the majority of which are for disabled drivers.

Temporary provision will be made for students moving in and out of the accommodation, with time slots allocated to minimise disruption to the wider area.

University of Bristol works on the basis of minimum car ownership within its student body, limiting parking permits, promoting active travel and prioritising blue badge holders.
