Exciting news for our client Engine Shed this week, as Bristol City Council voted unanimously to in favour of Engine Shed 2, despite the planning officer’s recommendations.
The plans will see Bristol’s derelict George and Railway pub redeveloped to become part of the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone, increasing Engine Shed’s capacity by 150%, and enabling the development of long-term, sustainable and inclusive economic growth in Bristol and the surrounding area.
Commenting on the groundbreaking decision, Engine Shed Director, Nick Sturge said:
“I am thrilled that the Planning Committee has seen the opportunity that the Engine Shed 2 planning approval presents in a second iconic Bristol heritage site. Following on from the success of Engine Shed, and our proven custodianship of a listed building, we are now able to build on our inclusive economic growth plan that serves communities in Bristol and Bath. These are indeed exciting times.”
At OggaDoon, we’ve witnessed first hand the amazing work Engine Shed do, from enabling otherwise unlikely networking opportunities in the Business Lounge, to nurturing start ups to become scale-ups, to cultivating cost effective business for the region. Engine Shed’s expansion will bring a new level of acceleration to Bristol’s economic growth, and can’t wait to see what happens next on their own scale-up journey.
