Planning permission granted for Abbey Wood Retail Park
Stoke Gifford Parish Council has granted planning permission for a new hotel and fast food drive-through unit at Abbey Wood Retail Park in Filton, South Gloucestershire.
G&T is providing Cost and Project Management services to Invesco Real Estate on the new development which will provide a four-storey Travelodge with 85 bedrooms and a Greggs drive thru, alongside public realm and parking for 46 vehicles, including four electric charging points. It will be connected to the existing retail park via a shared cycle path and footpath, which will also provide dedicated cycling parking provision.
Abbey Wood Retail Park itself will see some additional tree, hedge and shrub planting as well as the introduction of feature paving and a change to lighter-coloured metal cladding panels on the hotel to satisfy concerns raised by the council.
Together with the existing shops and restaurant, the new hotel and fast food drive through will play an important part in fulfilling the economic demands created when YTL's Bristol Arena opens as well as creating up to 25 new full time jobs.
