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.

The Bishopston Society is very concerned that this proposal for a whole additional floor to be provided within a large flat roof dormer would be detrimental to the appearance of the house and the street as a whole.

Following the minor revisions to the application of 2 March, we have updated our comments as below :

BarTapsThe Licensing Committee has rejected an application from Boston Tea Party to extend its hours, and to sell drinks without food.
Particular store was set by objections from local residents concerned by existing noise levels, and worried by the prospect of anti-social behaviour.

Worryingly though, the Committee still does not appear to understand its own policy  -  the Cumulative Impact Area.

wetherspoonsFollowing the withdrawal of their previous application, Wetherspoon have submitted a new application to turn 349-353 Gloucester Road into a pub.

 The details can be seen here.

You can make a public comment on this application on the Council's website here.

Application ref number  :  14/05393/PREM

The application is for the sale of alcohol Monday to Sunday between the hours of 10:00 and 22:30.

 The Bishopston Society had objected to the application on the grounds that the premises are within the Cumulative Impact Area (CIA), but following the withdrawal of the Environmental Officer's objection, our objection has also been withdrawn.
