28 RADNOR ROAD   14/04223/F

We would like to object to this application on the following grounds;

1.       Conversion of a single family house into 5 self-contained flats is overdevelopment of the site and out of keeping with the area

2.       The plans proposed show a range of windows along the side elevation on the line of the legal boundary on the ground and first floor levels which would create unacceptable overlooking of the adjacent plot (where a family house is currently being constructed) and is contrary to the Building Regulations

3.       The site is so overdeveloped that the only area available for storage of refuse/ recycling and cycles is in the front garden

4.        The majority of the units proposed do not comply with Bristol City Council’s minimum space standards of 45m2 for any single unit

This application has not been thought through properly and would be highly detrimental to the street and the local area.

We strongly recommend refusal.

We are concerned about this application for a conservatory running right up to the boundary with neighbouring properties.  The proposed conservatory is approx 1.2m above the garden of the adjoining property.  One end of the conservatory has extensive glazing and the other is unenclosed.  In each case the conservatory would create problems of overlooking and fire risk on the line of the boundary.

We recommend refusal.

On Nov 17th 2014 we received this letter from The BCC:

Dear   The Bishopston Society,
