SORRY! PLANNING PORTAL OUT OF ACTION: We are sorry to have to announce that The Bishopston Planning Portal is currently out of action. For technical reasons beyond our control, much of the information gathered via the portal is not currently being updated automatically, and therefore the portal does not currently provide a reliable indication of the details or status of planning applications. You may still view it, but beware of misleading results please. We are working to develop a fix for this problem. Bristol City Council's online planning database at https://planningonline.bristol.gov.uk/ remains the definitive source of information.

planningapplicationsApplication Summary
Address: 28 & 30 Cranbrook Road Bristol BS6 7BW
Proposal: Works to front and rear roofslopes of each house to facilitate loft conversions.

Whilst we accept that a great deal of thought has gone into this application, we cannot support it, on the grounds that it looks lumpen and ungainly from the front and side and quite horrendous from the rear.

28 to 30 cranbrook Road 1

We understand that it is not easy to work around the existing split-level arrangement at the rear of the properties, but this does not mean that an unsatisfactory end result is acceptable.

The three28 to 30 Cranbrook Road 22 pane casement windows proposed to the roof level extensions are out of keeping with the character of the existing properties and the rendered finish to the large rear dormer only serves to emphasise its bulk and its ungainly position, right on the rear corner of the houses. The veluxes on the side dormers, to provide ventilation to the en-suites, look fussy and out of place.

Despite all good intentions to retain the balanced appearance of the two houses as matching semis, we are not convinced that the end result is acceptable, particularly within a Conservation Area setting. We recommend refusal.
