The Old Mill Road area has been recognised by North Somerset Council as having the potential to make a greater contribution to the town centre than it currently does. Standard Life Investments believes that the best way of achieving this is by attracting new shops and leisure operators that are not currently in the town which will:
- Retain trade and spend in Portishead, helping a wide range of businesses in the town centre;
- Provide greater shopping and leisure choice for the people of Portishead; and
- Generate a significant number of new jobs.
We also believe the site can make a significant contribution to the housing needs of the town and has the potential to provide options for first-time buyers and those who would like to live in the town but aren’t currently able to.
Below is an indicative plan of how Old Mill Road could be configured in the future.
