Our plans

Our planning application for the regeneration of Silverthorne Lane was approved in August 2020

The planning application approved by councillors is for the delivery of Oasis Academy Temple Quarter – a much needed new secondary school for east central Bristol, 371 new homes (including affordable housing) alongside commercial and community employment space, and purpose-built student accommodation for up to 690 students. The development also includes outline planning consent for a new flexible office building to be delivered by the University of Bristol.

The plans include a comprehensive landscape strategy for the site, which will open up the canalside to the public for the first time at this location. Highways and access improvements are also proposed, including new cycle and pedestrian links through the low-car development. There are the remains of a number of listed buildings on the site reflecting the area's industrial heritage. These will be retained and restored, as well as the iconic canal wall.
