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 remains the definitive source of information.

planningapplicationsPlannng Application 16/03350/H

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

The Society is extremely concerned about the impact of this application on the neighbours, particularly no. 90 alongside.

Our main concerns are at second floor/roof level where two very large dormers are proposed which dominate the existing roofscape and have extensive glazing giving wide ranging views over the neighbouring properties and invading the privacy of local residents. This is made worse by the further proposal for a projecting glass fronted balcony to the rear, accessed by full width folding sliding doors, with commanding views over neighbouring gardens.
The new rear living extension is showing 'possible future' double doors to the side elevation, again overlooking no. 90 next door, which are not appropriate.

We would recommend refusal.
