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.

The hearing for this application has been set for 5 March 2015, at 10:00 in Brunel House, St Georges Road, Bristol BS1 5UY, when the planning and licensing applications will be heard at the same time.

The Bishopston Society has objected to the application (for an extension of alcohol and music hours to midnight, 7 days a week) on the grounds that the premises are within the Cumulative Impact Area (CIA)

We are concerned that this proposed rear kitchen extension is significantly higher than the extensions of the properties on either side.

1 - 5 ASHLEY ROAD 14/06316/F

This is an uninspiring scheme which sits very tightly on its site. The parking area in particular is extremely tight with little manoeuvring space.

We are extremely concerned about this application for a roof extension.

The house is on the corner of Monk Road and Monmouth Road and clearly visible from the public realm on both sides.

29 SEYMOUR ROAD    14/05230/F

This application is an improvement over the earlier applications for 5 no. and 4 no. houses respectively.  However, we are still concerned about certain aspects of the application;

131 GLOUCESTER ROAD   (ABLECTRICS)     14/05489/F

We support the updating of the shop front and front elevation of 131 Gloucester Road and the incorporation of innovative low energy lighting.

13 TYNE ROAD   14/05476/F

The Bishopston Society is very concerned about this application for a 4 Bedroom (3 bedrooms plus a study) 2 storey family house within the rear garden of 13 Tyne Road and accessed by means of a narrow rear lane which to date has served only garages.  Our concerns are as follows;

 29 RADNOR ROAD    14/05616/F

 This application follows our objection to the previous application dated 9 October 2014 and its subsequent refusal.

 Despite the fact that this proposal has been reduced from 5 no units down to 4 no, we would still like to object on the following grounds;

BISHOPS LANE (to the rear of 210 Gloucester Road)   14/04914/F

Unfortunately, we were unable to get our letter of response to this application sent in time! This application has now been granted. However, despite this, it may still be of interest to show below what our objection was to this application:

We are concerned about many aspects of this demolition of an existing 2 storey brick warehouse and replacement with a 2 bedroom dwelling as follows;
