Our Area

With a total land area of 497 sq km, (53,665 hectares) South Gloucestershire is one of the largest unitary authorities in the South West, stretching from the Severn Estuary in the west to the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in the east. Its southern boundary borders Bristol, abuts the River Avon and extends almost to Bath.

Urban Yet Rural

Both the first and second crossing of the River Severn lie within South Gloucestershire and the area is well served by both motorway and rail links. The district has a rich natural and cultural heritage and is an area of diversity and contrast, with a variety of communities, characterised by the special relationship between town and country. Attractive and historic landscapes link unspoilt market towns, villages and established rural and urban communities with major new residential areas, industrial and commercial developments.

Bristol and Bath City Region

The area has well-established manufacturing industries such as aerospace and advanced engineering. Many high technology companies such as micro-electronics and silicon design are now based in South Gloucestershire and a high profile Bristol and Bath Science Park (BBSP) has been developed in partnership with public and private sector investment. The BBSP is also the home of the National Composite Centre. Substantial growth has also taken place in recent years in the East Fringe of Bristol at Longwell Green and Emersons Green and beyond the green belt at Yate/Chipping Sodbury.

We work closely with our West of England partners and are part of the WoE LEP (see link below).
