Outline planning has been granted to develop a new £300m campus for Bristol University next door to the city’s Temple Meads railway station.

The 45,000m² Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus (pictured) will feature university departments, teaching and commercial space and accommodation for up to 1,500 graduate and post-graduate students.

Perfect Circle, a consortium featuring Aecom, Buro Happold, Arup, Grant Associates and architect firms Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and Alfred Hall Monaghan Morris, will be designing the campus.

Bristol university revised its initial proposals for the campus following feedback from the local council, residents and others.

The main changes include reducing the height and changing the layout of the proposed student accommodation buildings on Arena Island, which range from 12 to 21 storeys.

The outline planning permission covers the proposed density and scale of the buildings and access to the site.

Specific details about the appearance and layout of the new campus will be submitted at a later stage of the planning application process.
