planningapplicationsIt is clear from the plans and the extensive objections received from local residents and users of the Ardagh Pavilion that the proposals have been designed without proper consultation and that there are significant practical problems.

planningapplicationsThis is an interesting re use of a tiny existing garage site. We have no concerns about introducing a residential use. However the house has a total internal area of 64m2 which is substantially below the Nationally Described Space Standard which stipulates a minimum of 70m2 for even a 3 person 2 bedroom house.

planningapplicationsWe are concerned that the proposed dwelling is extremely tight on the site, but our main concern is regarding the off-street parking bay which is 10/11m wide, ugly and impractical.

planningapplicationsThe Bishopston Society is very concerned about the weakness of Permitted Development legislation and its interpretation by planning officers on the ground.

planningapplicationsWe consider that this application is too large, too tall, too close to the boundary and does not take consideration of the amenity of no. 101 alongside.
