The Bishopston Society has heard from some of our members about the proposal to extend the school further. Though we understand the pressure for providing more primary school places in Bishopston, we share the concern of local residents, we would like to offer some suggestions, prior to the formal application.

The website editor, writing to his local MP, Stephen Williams, about his concern over the new 'lax' regulations relating to house extensions has now received the following reply:

The following letter has been sent by our secretary to Bristol City Council Planning Department:

The recent period has been relatively quiet on the planning front with few significant applications.

Oct 22nd 2012. We are concerned about the proposed dormer treatment to the front elevation.

Oct 22nd 2012. We are concerned with the proposed gable appearance of this roof extension.

Oct 22nd 2012. The Society considers this to be an excellent application, well considered and suited to the site.

Oct 22nd 2012. The Society is concerned about this conversion of a roofspace into a 1 bedroom flat.

138 Gloucester Road
Proposed relevant licensable activities to be carried on or from the premises:
Sale of Alcohol Monday to Sunday 06:00 – 00:00  Opening hours applied for: Monday to Sunday 06:00 - 00:00

The response by the Bishopston Society to the Council about this application reads as follows:

Bristol City Council is moving forward with the introduction of a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) for Bristol. The Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) will also be amended in order that both CIL and the Council's revised Planning Obligations policies are implemented simultaneously.
