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 remains the definitive source of information.


11, ASH ROAD   
The Bishopston Society is concerned about this application to extend a roofspace to a house with a hipped roof which has already been converted.

  The information provided is incomplete and as such, a decision should not be made until the following are provided:

-          Design and Access Statement

-          Elevation drawings both existing and proposed

-          Block Plan

-          Photographs of the existing house

Our recommendation is, that judging from the plans provided, the proposal will be unacceptable from the visual amenity point of view.  The plans imply that the dormer will be extended and project at the front, on the rear part of the side and all along the rear.  In the absence of proper drawings which demonstrate that the end result will be attractive and acceptable, we strongly recommend refusal.
