Application 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.
