Deeley Freed is working on the redevelopment of this Green Belt site in South Gloucestershire, located on the eastern edge of Bristol.

Creating a community feel in Oldland Common will be integral to this scheme’s success, while also presenting the biggest challenge with such varied uses to consider, including housing, retail and a doctor’s surgery.

Proposals were submitted to South Gloucestershire Council in the summer of 2021 to fully redevelop the site for residential, retail, supported housing and a helthcare practice for the local surgery.  The scheme is being designed to maximise green open space and create a vibrant mix of community uses.

We anticipate obtaining planning imminently and starting work on site later in 2022. 


There’s an ancient Roman road underneath this site, and the surrounding landscape was untouched and significantly overgrown. When our teams set about clearing vegetation at the eastern end of the site, they discovered two cars and a digger hidden in the undergrowth!
