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 https://planningonline.bristol.gov.uk/ remains the definitive source of information.

Welcome to our Planning section, revamped May 2018 to coincide with the launch of our new planning portal. A major part of the "core business" of The Bishopston Society concerns the built environment in our area, so this section includes material on our work monitoring local planning applications, wider developments, archiecture, licensing and related matters.

planningapplicationsPlannng Application 16/03350/H

Loft Extension with rear balcony, ground floor rear extension, new front porch.

Here are some recent applications where we found ourselves in favour of the proposed changes  :

planningapplicationsPlanning Application 16/02075/H

Loft conversion and partial rear extension.

planningapplicationsPlanning Application 16/02546/CP

Application for a Lawful Development Certificate for proposed roof extensions.

planningapplicationsPlanning Application 16/02672/H

Drop curb outside of 186 Ashley Down Road, remove garden wall and pave front garden to convert into off street parking.

planningapplicationsThe Bishopston Society is concerned about the height and bulk of this proposal at second floor level in close proximity to the rear of 389 and 391 Gloucester Road.

planningapplications The Bishopston Society is concerned about this application for a bulky 2 storey side extension, full width dormer to the rear and the loss of the hip end and two chimneys to the roof.

Alcohol License A public consultation meeting will be held between 1 – 8pm on Monday 25th April at the Memorial Ground.  J D Wetherspoon will be presenting their revised proposals for 349 Gloucester Road in advance of submitting their further (3rd) planning application.

planningapplications The Bishopston Society has given this application careful consideration and is concerned about the proposal for an external balcony at first floor level which would overlook the rear garden of 133 Ashley Down Road alongside.

planningapplications The Bishopston Society is very concerned about this conversion proposal into three flats. The internal arrangements are not satisfactory in terms of access, fire escape, daylighting and do not comply with Building Regulations. We consider that this application is overdevelopment and totally inappropriate. We recommend refusal.

NOTE: the articles shown above are merely the most recent 10 in our Planning section. There's lots more as you'll see by clicking through to the sub-sections Commentary, Architecture, Licensing and Policies.
