The University of Bristol and their project team would like to thank all those who participated in the first round of consultation in April 2010. A summary report from the event is available to view and download below.

A further round of consultation will now take place in the form of a drop-in style exhibition. On display will be more detailed proposals including information on later phases of the project. During the exhibition there will be two ‘meet the team sessions’ when visitors will be able to discuss any queries and talk face-to-face with representatives from the University and the project team. Staff, students and members of the public are invited to view and comment on the latest proposals before the scheme is finalised and a planning application submitted in July 2010.
