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.

planningapplicationsApplication Summary. Address: 102 Gloucester Road Bishopston Bristol BS7 8BN
Proposal: Convert shipping container into juice/wrap/sandwich serving bar.


The Bishopston Society is concerned about this application. The former Methodist Church has only recently been selected by the planning department as a Building of Merit within the Gloucester Road Conservation Area. We consider that the proposed container outlet would substantially detract from the church, which marks the limit of the Conservation Area and the intersection of the Gloucester Road with Berkeley and Sommerville Roads. Furthermore, we are not convinced that there is a need for a pavement food outlet when there are already so many excellent cafes serving healthy food in the area. We recommend refusal.
