The property group whose plans to redevelop Bristol city centre were thrown out by the city council has scrapped its scheme and announced proposals for the second biggest consultation programme in British history.

The Financial Times (p3) reports that Crest Nicholson's plans for a multi-screen cinema, flats and offices were rejected in January after local opinion turned against them.

The the firm is now setting up a committee of 20 members that will include lobby groups, political parties and representatives from ethnic minority groups and voluntary organisations.

John Callcut, Crest chief executive, said that the consultation would be similar to that carried out for a redevelopment of London's South Bank.

The committee will interview planners and advise architects to the scheme. The approved design will be studied by randomly selected local people.
