People who live and work near the site of the new arena are being asked to help plan for when the venue opens.
Bristol City Council and South Gloucestershire Council have launched a joint survey to learn more about people’s travel habits and parking needs.
The information collected will help the two local authorities investigate what kind of measures might be needed to help mitigate the impacts of the development.
The new YTL Arena Bristol, being built in the Brabazon Hangars next to the former Filton airfield, is expected to open towards the end of 2025 or early 2026.
Arena goers will be able to get to and from the venue by train, public bus, shuttle bus, walking and cycling, and will be able to park in the arena’s car park.
However, some people may also choose to drive and park on nearby streets, so this is something the councils need to plan for.
The arena travel and parking survey is available at www.southglos.gov.uk/arenaparking until Monday 6 March.
If measures are needed Bristol City Council and South Gloucestershire Council will carry out further consultation with local people.
To request paper copies of the consultation information, email [email protected] or call 01454 868009.
