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.

Welcome to our Planning section, revamped May 2018 to coincide with the launch of our new planning portal. A major part of the "core business" of The Bishopston Society concerns the built environment in our area, so this section includes material on our work monitoring local planning applications, wider developments, archiecture, licensing and related matters.

Planning This article presents TBS policies on planning, primarily as they affect individual planning applications at present, in terms of: type of use propsoed; development proposals; street scene; trees, gardens and landscaping; design; and sustainability.

BISHOP ROAD PRIMARY SCHOOL - PRE APPLICATION CONSULTATION
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 reply from the Government to the Bishopston Society's request that the Sainsbury's planning application be 'called in' reads as follows:

To the National Planning Casework Unit: PROPOSED SUPERMARKET ON MEMORIAL STADIUM 12/02090

The Bishopston Society are concerned at the decision by the Planning Committee to grant permission for the new supermarket and would recommend that it is ‘called in’ by the Secretary of State for review prior to a final decision being made.
