Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus – Outline Planning Application

11 August 2017

Following on from the extensive consultation carried out concerning the proposed masterplan for the new Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus, work is now firmly underway on an outline planning application to support the proposals.


The University’s team, led in this case by JLL Planning Consultants and Feilden Clegg Bradley Architects has commissioned an extensive environmental impact assessment, which will consider all environmental impacts of the University’s proposals, ranging from ecology and archaeology through potential flood impact and remediation to transportation and visual impact. In order to support this work, a design phase has now been introduced on the masterplan itself.


Patrick Finch, Bursar and Director of Estates, commented:


The outline planning application is an important milestone in the establishment of the Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus. The outline planning application should fix the overall capacity of the site, which the masterplan suggests is around 80,000 square metres of gross accommodation. It will also look carefully at all access routes within the site and in particular those linking the University’s Campus to other elements of the Enterprise Zone. The University has been careful to ensure that appropriate links to and through Temple Meads Railway Station, to the site of the proposed new Bristol arena and across the floating harbour to Avon Street can all be enabled by the masterplan.


The recent public consultation event has been incredibly helpful for the University in developing its view of what critical issues for the development of the campus are likely to be and we will be following this up with a further consultation session before the planning application is submitted.


Further updates will be provided over the course of the summer.
