Yate Town Improvement Masterplan: A plan for Yate to flourish and prosper

South Gloucestershire Council, along with its partners, have prepared a strategic masterplan for Yate. 

The plan, which could see between £300 and £600 million invested in the town, will build on Yate’s existing character to make it an even more welcoming, healthy, sustainable, and prosperous place to live, work and visit.

The masterplan was developed over 2 years, working with partners including Yate Town Council, Circadian Trust (responsible for the leisure centre), the NHS, South Western Ambulance Service, Avon Fire & Rescue Service and Ellandi. Stakeholders, community groups and the public were engaged with at each key stage of masterplan development. A 12-week public consultation was held over the summer 2021 for local people to share their views on a draft masterplan, which included ambitions for change over the medium to long term (15 to 20 years and beyond) for the town centre, the railway station, the western gateway/ industrial area, and Station Road. 

The project team reviewed all the feedback received during the public consultation. The feedback highlighted a number of priorities for people living, working, and visiting the town and these have been used to shape a final version of the masterplan for Yate. Take a look at how the key feedback raised during the consultation has been addressed by viewing the ‘Our Response to Your Feedback’ chapter in the Public Consultation Output Report.
