University plans for new campus at Temple Meads

Plans for the University of Bristol’s new campus near Temple Meads will be on show 11th-22nd September. The concept of Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus was announced in June and the University is presenting its consulting on its plans prior to submitting an outline planning proposal to Bristol City Council this autumn.

The outline planning application will incorporate the proposed density and scale of the buildings (see picture below), as well as access to the site.

The seven-acre site covers the former Royal Mail sorting office and part of Arena Island next to Temple Meads. The plans include public spaces, landscaping, and new cycle and pedestrian links to the area.

The consultation in September includes:

  • An exhibition at Engine Shed, next to Bristol Temple Meads train station, open 8.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
  • A second exhibition in Senate House, Tyndall Avenue, open 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
  • A public meeting on September 12 from 3pm to 7pm at Engine Shed, where people are encouraged to drop in, hear more and ask questions.

People can share their feedback at any time via emailing or calling 0117 977 2002. Updates will be given on the Temple Quarter Campus web page:

As this proposal progresses, representatives from the university will also be attending community events, including TRESA’s public meeting in November. (TRESA will publicise this meeting nearer the time but pencil Wednesday 15th November, 7.30-9.00pm, in your diary – these plans will affect Totterdown residents!)
