The Avonmouth Severnside Enterprise Area (ASEA) is one of a select group of strategically important employment locations across the West of England that complements the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone.
The Avonmouth Severnside Enterprise Area is an industrial location of internationally significant scale, extending for 5 miles along the Severn Estuary and covering some 1,800 hectares. The area is located between Bristol and the River Severn, immediately adjacent to the M5 and M49 motorways.
It consists of two main areas of economic activity – Avonmouth in the south and Severnside in the north. Avonmouth is the closest port to the main centres of UK population, with 45 million people living within a radius of 300 kilometres. In 2018, the three largest sectors in ASEA are Advanced Engineering and Aerospace (AEA) (c.32%), Distribution (c.28%) and Construction (c.15%)
These key components of employment in Avonmouth Severnside reflect its attractiveness as an area for large-scale industrial, warehouse and distribution, energy and waste processing uses, in addition to the activities of the port and its associated storage and distribution facilities and associated industries.
The Enterprise Area will benefit from significant forthcoming infrastructure investment including an already approved deep-water container terminal at the port and improvements to provide direct access to strategic road and rail networks.
The area predominantly services the following activities:
- Storage and distribution centres
- Energy and waste schemes (incl. bio mass power plants)
