This is what part of Bristol City Centre could look like if plans to build a new arena are dropped.

Developers have released their vision of Temple Island.

Plans include a conference centre, 345-room hotel, and 550 new homes of which 220 will be classed as affordable.

Investors Legal and General want to pay £300m to fund the development.

The site has been at the centre of an ongoing political debate which dates back to 2003.

They say their proposal would be a more 'environmentally friendly' than if plans to build an arena next to Temple Meads train station went ahead.

Bristol City Council will make a decision on the future of the site on 4 September.
