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.

The Bishopston Society is extremely concerned about the design of the large proposed dormer window to the rear of this property.

The dormer is extremely large, flat roofed, has a combination of lead cladding to the front face and tile hanging to the sides and large glazed doors and Juliette balcony overlooking neighbouring gardens.  But worst of all the dormer is so wide as to miss the line of the main hip of the roof, thus necessitating an ungainly cranked  side cheek.  This is a very poor piece of design and, if permitted, would result in the disfigurement of the rear and side of the property.  We strongly recommend refusal.
