Symes Avenue is the District Shopping Centre serving the outer estates of Hartcliffe and Withywood with a total population of around 20,000 people. The estates, built in the 1950s and 1960's, have long been identified as suffering a multitude of different problems which characterise a deprived and socially excluded community. Hartcliffe is a key example of the lack of investment suffered by South Bristol in general, certainly when compared to the much more affluent North.


It is widely acknowledged that Symes Avenue has been in continual decline since the early 1990s,but is now a key regeneration site. On 12 November 2007 a Morrisons supermarket opened after a massive redevelopment of the area. The redevelopment also includes a new library. The redevelopment should also be included alongside the "Junction" dvelopment on the old Will's site; many well known retailers are now operating on this site, providing many jobs and opportunities for the Hartcliffe area.
