The Bishopston Society considers that this application to enlarge the roofspace will have the effect of making this property stand head and shoulders above its lower neighbours.  We recommend refusal.

 The Planning Departments decision:

Dear Sir/Madam

Notification of Decision
Application No.  13/04586/H
Site Address:  36 Cricklade Road Bristol BS7 9EN 

Following your comments about the above application, I can inform you that the proposal was considered under delegated powers on 25 November 2013, and the decision was as follows:  REFUSED.

Please note that while the above application has been refused planning permission, the applicant does have the opportunity to appeal against the decision, and this will mean the application being re-examined by an independent Planning Inspector. In addition, a fresh application could be submitted which seeks to overcome the stated reasons for refusal, which the council would have to consider and make a decision on. In either case, we will write to you and let you know what is happening.

A copy of the officer report and decision notice with the reasons for refusal, can now be viewed from our website. A copy of the officer report and the decision notice with any conditions attached, can now be viewed from our website.
