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.

43 Nevil Road - Copy43 NEVIL ROAD
Copy of our letter to the BCC Planning Department:

We consider that the current proposal is a marked improvement over the previous application 13/04582/F, which had 7 flats and excessive on-site parking and significant loss of the boundary wall enclosure.

However we are still concerned at the prospect of 5 flats with only 2 off-street parking spaces. We appreciate that the applicant is proposing to rebuild the side extension in the style, materials and craftsmanship to match the existing house but we are concerned about the fire escape from the bedrooms of flats 4 and 5 passing through the living area, which is a fire hazard. 
We recommend that the accommodation is reduced from 5 flats to 4 flats and the off-street parking increased from 2 to 3, by the addition of space within the proposed parking area off of Mervyn Road. With the further additional space already proposed on Nevil Road, by the omission of the existing off-street space, this would make the application ‘parking-neutral’ with 4 spaces for 4 flats.

In conclusion, we would recommend that the application as currently formulated is refused.
