Bath Quays is the Council’s flagship regeneration project to create a new and vibrant commercial quarter for Bath’s flourishing businesses in the heart of the city. It is being designed to address the gap in provision of grade A office space in the city and will allow existing businesses to expand and new businesses to relocate to the city. In addition to creating economic growth and new high-wage jobs for Bath, this exciting project will offer new homes and more attractive, useable public space alongside the river.The site, located on the north and south side of the river between Churchill Bridge and Green Park, comprises:
Bath Quays Waterside
Flood works are almost complete and a new road layout has allowed for a new south-facing park with pedestrian and cycle routes, landscaping and new space for temporary activities and events.
Bath Quays Bridge
A new pedestrian and cycle bridge will connect sites north and south of the river. Planning permission has been granted and construction is due to start in 2018. Click to find out more about Bath Quays Bridge.
Bath Quays South
This comprises the old Newark Works site and surrounding area south of the river. It will offer new homes and exciting spaces for the digital, technology and creative companies who can deliver the right type of jobs for Bath’s economic future. Planning permission has been granted and construction is due to start in 2018.

Bath Quays North
This is the Council’s most significant regeneration project at the heart of the Bath City Riverside Enterprise Zone.

Find out more about Bath Quays North.

Odd Down Coach Parking
Alterations will start week commencing 16 April 2018 within the north east corner of the Odd Down Park & Ride site to provide a location for long stay coach parking. Public information drop-in sessions were held in March at the Odd Down Sports Ground and St Gregory's Catholic School. The public information panels and Q & A's from these sesssions can be found in the Documents section on the right hand side of this page.
As the works will be fairly contained and separate from the existing car parking facilities we expect any noise and disruption will be very minimal. These works will be carried out by North Midland Construction, should you experience any disruption please call their Site manager on 07970 136549.
A colony of "small blue" butterfly and other similiar invertebrates are known to be present on site and a mitigation strategy is underway. For more information please read the ecology background papers found in the Documents section on the right hand side of this page.
The Council's Placemaking Plan and Economic Strategy allocated Avon St and Riverside coach park for regeneration into Bath Quays. The transformation of this area has already begun, requiring a new arrangement for coach visitors. These changes were consulted upon in September 2017 as part of the Council's Parking and Coach Strategy and the decision to use Odd Down Park & Ride for long stay coach parking was adopted in February 2018.
