A new hub for start-ups and creative businesses could be built in Bristol after plans for the redevelopment of Brunel's Old Station were submitted.

The building, which used to be the British Empire and Commonwealth Museum, would be transformed as part of the Bristol Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone.

The proposals for the grade I-listed property, submitted by Childs and Sulzmann Architects on behalf of Science Research Foundation at the University of Bristol, include the conversion of the existing Homes and Communities Agency-owned building to provide additional office floor space.

The scheme would create up to 150 new jobs, 110 of which would be full time. Work is anticipated to start in April, according to the planning documents.
