Plans for a visitor centre at the Clifton Suspension Bridge were approved yesterday (September 13).
Bristol architects Alec French have designed the proposed new visitor centre on the Leigh Woods side of the Clifton Suspension Bridge.
The two-story heritage centre would replace a temporary building which has been operating as an exhibition centre and shop at the Brunel-designed structure.
An exhibition space, a small shop, toilets and an office are proposed.
The Bridge's trust now has to wait until November to find out if they will get funding for the project from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
It is hoped the attraction will be open by December 2014 - the 150th anniversary of the opening of the bridge.
