29 SEYMOUR ROAD 14/01675/F

We must apologise for the late arrival of our comments in this case.
Following the refusal of the earlier planning applications 13/03067/F and 14/00146, the Bishopston Society continues to be concerned about the current application for the site.

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

43 Nevil Road - Copy43 NEVIL ROAD
Copy of our letter to the BCC Planning Department:

We consider that the current proposal is a marked improvement over the previous application 13/04582/F, which had 7 flats and excessive on-site parking and significant loss of the boundary wall enclosure.

 Work has been at a standstill for over 5 weeks now, on this conversion of the old Baths to a Health Centre and an adjacent new public library.Gloucester Road Bristol North Baths Oct 16th 2012 2 - Copy More on this story here

Blue Lagoon - CopyThe owners of the Blue Lagoon, on the Gloucester Road, had put in an application for a replacement and extension of the shop front. The work to do this has now been completed, but was done without the application having been approved by the Council, who have now refused the application.

Update on this refusal (Sept 1st 2014):

The Council is in the process of serving an Enforcement Notice to secure removal of the canopy. The agent has already confirmed that they intend to appeal the Notice, and it is expected that this process will take around 6 months.

LAND TO REAR OF 45 & 47 RADNOR ROAD      14/00558/F
 
We consider that this application is a more acceptable solution than the previous refused application 13/02244.  Our comments are as follows:

79 BELMONT ROAD       14/00445/H

The Society is extremely concerned about the design of the new dormer which is designed in the style of a chalet bungalow and incompatible with the period, style and proportions of the existing house.

8 CHURCH ROAD    14/00518/H
We have two observations on this roof extension and rear dormer as follows:
-          the dormer is shown finished in white painted render.  This is an unsuitable material as it has the effect of making the dormer look as large as possible which affects the amenity of local residents.

124 BRYNLAND AVENUE    14/00565/H
We consider that the proposed rear extension would be overbearing and likely to affect the amenity of the neighbouring property by blocking out daylight.  This problem would be reduced if the overall height of the eaves of the extension on the boundary was reduced from 2.6m to say 2.2m, which would be only slightly higher than the existing separating boundary garden wall. 

AlcoholCIAThe BCC Licensing Committee is consulting on the question of whether the Gloucester Road Cumulative Impact Area (CIA) should continue to operate. The Bishopston Society has always supported this designation as applied to the Gloucester Road, since its inception.
