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.

Site address:
Ground Floor, 18 Gloucester Road, Bishopston, Bristol BS7 8AE.
Description of development:
Change of use of ground floor from retail Class A1 to Cafe/Restaurant A3 use in conjunction with the adjacent premises, The Blue Lagoon, 20 Gloucester Road, Bishopston, BS7 8AE.

(Proposed opening hours Monday - Thursday 07.30 - 24.00, Friday - Saturday 07.30 - 01.30 and 07.30 - 24.00 Sunday).
