Bristol City Council, in conjunction with the Dundry View Neighbourhood Partnership is seeking expressions of interest for the

refurbishment and re-use of former Bishopsworth Pool for either commercial or community use.


As this building has previously been in community use the Council would wish to encourage expressions of interest that include details of how the property can continue to be used by the local community and meet local needs.


All details are in the attached document, please pass onto others.


The Council are seeking expressions of interest from interested parties to let the former Bishopsworth Swimming Pool building either as a community opportunity or for commercial use. The building could be adapted for community use subject to any necessary planning consents. In commercial terms, the building could also be adapted for a variety of uses, again subject to any necessary planning consents. In terms of length of lease, the premises are being offered on a new 25 year lease with five yearly reviews.

We are hosting a session for any group or organisation which wants to put forward an Expression of Interest to make use of the former Bishopsworth Pool building. John Bos is the City Council Community Buildings Manager and he will be leading the session. If you want any advice or help about what to put in your Expression of Interest he will have the answer.

The session will take place on Tuesday 11th December- 6.30pm-7.30pm in the @Symes Community Building, Peterson Avenue Hartcliffe Bristol BS13 0BE.
