Primary school to be built on former college site

Plans for a new 420-pupil school to serve the Windmill Hill area were unveiled last month.

The primary school will be run as a new academy on the site of the former City of Bristol College, Marksbury Road, and is part of a local regeneration project being led in partnership with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).

The project includes a new health centre, mix of homes and employment space. Following further design work the former college will be completely replaced to allow for a landmark building for the area. Full details of the planning application can be found at www.bristol.gov.uk
