A funding package for the Bristol Arena has been approved by Mayor George Ferguson at a Council Cabinet meeting tonight (Thursday 16 January). The arena project would cost £91 million overall, and as part of the package, the Council hopes central government will contribute £53 million.
The package will also need approval at a full council meeting next month, before it is given the final go-ahead. Tonight's decision means Bristol is a step closer to getting its own indoor arena - possibly as early as 2017.
