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.

Odd Down Coach Park
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. Public information drop-in sessions were held in March 2018 at the Odd Down Sports Ground and St Gregory's Catholic School. The public information panels and Q & A's from these sessions can be found in the Documents section on the right hand side of this page.
The works were completed and the coach park became operational in November 2018. For more information visit the Council's Coach Parking web page.
