Yes, 'Bristol' now has a million people :yes: :shifty:

These were the ONS mid 2010 estimates:

  • Bristol, city of: 441,300
  • South Gloucestershire: 264,800
  • N. Somerset: 212,194
  • Bath & N. Somerset: 179,704

Interesting that the S-Glos and Banes estimates were bang on, but N-Som and Bristol were off (though not by much) by around 10k each; a similar-ish repeat of what happened in 2001 perhaps? premature/over estimation? 2008 Recession? 10,000 anarchists?

Anyroad, the growth rate for CUBA is looking pretty healthy, with the City of Bristol 'officially' recovering the population that was lost during the period of decline, starting from the 1970s.

The fastest growing towns outside London all seem to be those without a green belt. These towns are Milton Keynes, Leicester, Peterborough, Slough and Swindon (all but Leicester are in the South and I think under this sub-forum's region). This doesnt seem to be that surprising. But the South of England's largest metropolitan area outside London according to the List of metropolitan areas in the United Kingdom article on wikipedia which is the Southampton/Portsmouth metropolitan area did not see considerable growth (above 10%) although that area does not have a green belt either. The regions other large metro area the Bristol area as talked about in the posts above didnt have growth above 10% either (althought the city of Bristol did have growth of 10% other former avon districts had growth less than this).
