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.

Dear Ms Leigh,
20A MAPLE ROAD- 13/02792/F
The Bishopston Society has made an assessment of this application and would like to object on the following grounds:


•    The size of the flats does not comply with the Bristol City Council Core Strategy – Residential Space Standards
•    Access to the upper floor flats is shown passing through the existing office space which does not comply with Building Regulations
•    The proposals to extend the roof-space of the existing house will result in disfigurement of the existing roof shape and a huge unsightly flank wall
•     Ungainly appearance of the glass penthouse to the Elm Road Studios
•     Extension to Elm Road Studios dominates the old house
•     The development is too intensive and will result in further pressure on a street which is already extremely busy
•    Concern about further parking congestion and danger to young children who live nearby caused by increased vehicle movements
•     Refuse facilities are referred to at the front but not shown on the drawings
 We recommend refusal.
