4.7 As referenced above, growth within the SDL should be channelled eastwards towards Stock Lane and no other options are proposed in response to question 18. The University of Bristol owns significant land holdings immediately to the north of their existing veterinary college which is located off Stock Lane to the east and is the area which the route of the new bypass is shown. Given this land holding is in a single ownership, and is well related to a major employer, it seems sensible to explore incorporating this land into the SDL. Notwithstanding this, land to the south of the SDL is already earmarked to become a Strategic Gap, where the setting of key heritage features need to be safeguarded, and land to the west and north west comprises open countryside, which are also to be protected from future development. Appendix 1 outlines in red the University of Bristol’s land holding to the east of the SDL and also encompasses their land ownership within and around their existing veterinary college.

Summary
Growth within the SDL should be channelled eastwards towards Stock Lane and no other options are proposed in response to question 18.
