Approved: Bristol's Carriageworks buildings redevelopment plan

The Carriageworks have been derelict for nearly 30 years

An infamous eyesore in Bristol is finally going to be redeveloped following the City Council's approval.

The derelict Westmoreland House on Stokes Croft will be demolished and the adjoining Carriageworks renovated for business spaces and new homes.

The Carriageworks buildings have been derelict for almost 30 years. A London-based company will now transform it.

Bristol City Council deferred making a decision on the proposal in April after protests against the lack of social housing in the design.

The scheme was approved after changes to the original plans were made.
