Bristol City Council Central Area Planning Committee has granted planning approval for the University of Bristol’s proposed £80m development of new research and teaching accommodation for the Departments of Mathematics and Bioscience.
Nicholas Pearson Associates, as the external realm designer, has played a significant role in delivering this consent for the University, from the Masterplan stages in 2004, through the preparation of design guidance in 2007 and now to the detailed planning application which has received consent.
The site falls within 2 Conservation Areas, is adjacent to 5 listed buildings and contains a listed gateway structure. We have created a truly exciting public realm which provides ‘breathing space’ for these significant buildings, and embraces the academic functions of the mathematics, science and physics departments.
