Developer Ashfield Land has secured planning permission for a 200,000 sq ft office development next to Bristol Parkway Station.

Planning permission has been granted by South Gloucestershire Council and will see Ashfield Land bring forward a new HQ office scheme to be named The Approach.

The £100m office scheme is expected to attract strong interest from corporate occupiers. Ashfield Land hopes to find a tenant and complete the building in 2018, the same time as the Bristol to London rail electrification upgrades.

James Digby, director at Ashfield Land, said: “Bringing 200,000 sq ft of office space forward is a strong sign of confidence in the Bristol occupier market.

“The area has a strong track record in attracting major organisations particularly in financial services, defence and aerospace. The approved plans maximise the site’s location and public transport connectivity and will offer a stand out scheme for any corporate occupier.”

In addition to rail connectivity, a new link road is currently under construction offering almost direct access to the M32. Bristol’s new Metro Bus will also pass the site.
