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.
