Creative Common Planning Permission Paves Way Forward

Creative Common is pleased to announce that planning permission for the temporary use project on former Plot 3 site in Bristol Temple Quarter has now been approved.

The former car park in the centre of Bristol’s business district is now set to be transformed: An events space, hosting anything from a showcase of Bristol culture to conferences, a new ‘city breathing space’ for workers, weekend visitors and commuters to enjoy, and a dining and bar facilities will be created by this exciting new social enterprise.

Creative Common will involve neighbouring businesses, communities and small enterprise in design and even build of new developments on site especially of the new area of public space.

Creative Common, the food offering, public space and events space, will be to serve the local business population as well as new visitors to the site. The new social enterprise will soon start a dialogue with local stakeholders on what they’d like to see, and they can get involved.

The site is the first to be opened up in the the Enterprise Zone for temporary use, and the planning application has been made under a new piece of planning legislation, the ‘Local Development Order’ for temporary uses for Plot 3 by leading Bristol architects CODA.

The project has been brought into being by a coalition of creative organisations and small enterprises including: Coexist, Artspace Lifespace, Invisible Circus, Circomedia, CODA Architects, forming a new Community Interest company. The project is closely supported by Bristol City Council and Funded by the Homes and Communities Agency.
