One of The Bishopston Society's concerns for our area is pubs and other alcohol outlets. We are not opposed to alcohol sales,  local entertainment venues or social activities - far from it, they are integral elements of the vibrancy of Bishopston - but we are conscious of the cumulative impact of multiple venues. Hence our aim is to monitor licensing applications and make representations accordingly. The articles in this section cover the work we did in this area between 2010 and 2015. However since then we have had nobody looking after this work, so are asking potential helpers to contact us if interested in helping to revive this work.

GallimaufryGallimaufry (previously called the Prom Wine bar) has put in an application to extend the hours for selling alcohol, for the playing of recorded music and performance of dance. Here are the details of this application and the Bishopston Society's response to this application.

alcoholThis refusal represents the first sign that the Council is taking seriously the applying of its own policy to the Gloucester Road Cumulative Impact Area. However, it is worrying that the branch of the Boston Tea Party in Whiteladies Road, which is another Cumulative Impact Area, is also applying for an extension to its licensing hours.

TBS response by letter (May 27th) with reference to the licence application for 'Lower East Side', 3, Zetland Road:

To Nick Carter Esq, Licensing Manager, Bristol City Council:       Dear Mr Carter
