Salmon Harvester Properties Ltd is preparing a planning application for the redevelopment of land at Temple Quay in Bristol (centred at NGR 359855 172655). The Temple Quay area of the city is a predominantly modern commercial area, but has a rich industrial heritage as a focus for Bristol’s former glass-manufacturing industry. The application area, referred to as Area ND5, lies within the boundary of an earlier development proposal by Castlemore Securities Ltd, the groundworks for which were progressed in 2007-08.
In order to secure archaeological interests, Bristol City Council recommended that a condition was attached to the 2007 planning permission that required an appropriate programme of archaeological excavation to be carried out in advance of development. Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned subsequently to undertake a major programme of archaeological investigation of the site, which commenced in April 2007. This allowed for the full excavation of the application site, including Area ND5, coupled with an archaeological watching brief that was maintained during groundworks associated with the development.
