Have your say on Bridgwater’s Brewery Field

Thursday 19th November, 2020

Sedgemoor District Council is inviting you to have your say in shaping the future of Brewery Field, which lies alongside the Northgate Leisure Scheme.  

Residents and visitors are now being asked to have their say on the future of this well-used and much-loved space.

The area has seen many changes over the past few years, which has seen a new Northgate Primary School, Blake Car Park and Aldi Supermarket, with an improved Northgate road junction.  So, the next phase to consider is the Brewery Field.    From now until Wednesday, 9th December, Sedgemoor residents can comment on the proposals and share views so that the scheme reflects the needs and aspirations of the people who use the area.

Due to the current Covid conditions, we are unable to carry out the survey as we would in normal circumstances.   There is a survey online at

http://www.sedgemoor.gov.uk/breweryfield or  you can email us at [email protected]

Because of these unusual circumstances where face-to-face consultation cannot take place, Stuart Martin, Sedgemoor’s Project Manager for the Northgate project will be able to answer queries or take ideas on the following number 01278 435459.

The larger, ambitious Northgate leisure scheme has approval to proceed, with a start on site scheduled for early 2021.  This will see a 7-screen cinema, bowling alley along with bars and restaurant.
