Address: 47A Zetland Road Bristol BS6 7AJ
Proposal: Outline application - Removal of light industrial accommodation and erection of two residential blocks containing nine flats, (with access, appearance, layout and scale to be considered).
Comments: The Bishopston Society is extremely concerned about this application. The proposal represents extreme overdevelopment; most particularly the rear garden area filled with 3 storey flats, which would overbear and overlook adjacent properties. The design can only be described as banal and totally out of keeping with the character of the conservation area. The mix of small units is inappropriate with the existing 'family house' character of the local area. The three parking spaces at the front of the site are woefully inadequate, unsightly and in conflict with pedestrian movement past the site.
An infill site like this within a conservation area should have an exemplary development which enhances the character and quality of the local area. We strongly recommend refusal.
