Planning in Bishopston
TBS response to planning application for 10 Longmead Avenue
- Category: Applications
We did object to the previous application for three houses on the grounds of poor resolution of the front elevation and particularly the profile of the mansard roof in relation to the adjoining property, the inadequacy of the external amenity space and the general unsuitability of this highly restricted site to provide a suitable living environment for families.
This application for a 4th house follows the format of the first three houses but struggles to make sense of the narrow tapering end of the site. We would question the basic concept of a three storey house 18.5m long with 4no double bedrooms and a total floor area of approx 250m2 on such a small site and with an external amenity area which is so small and narrow that it serves little purpose. We would recommend a very much smaller house on such a restricted site.
We recommend refusal.
