Bristol Free School plans are given council approval
Bristol Free School has been given the green light to create temporary facilities at Westbury-on-Trym.
Plans to re-use the former site of the Environment Agency and Defra on Burghill Road were approved by a planning committee on Wednesday.
The temporary site - which could be used until December 2012 - will include facilities for ICT, science and technology, sport and extra classrooms.
Bristol Free School is set to be the largest of its kind in England.
