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.



 14 MONK ROAD 14/06013/H

We are extremely concerned about this application for a roof extension.

The house is on the corner of Monk Road and Monmouth Road and clearly visible from the public realm on both sides.

The design proposes a large dormer extension to the main roof hip along with another secondary catslide dormer mounted on the back of it. The end result of this design strategy is visual confusion and horrible ungainly massing. The appearance of this roof extension is completely unacceptable. It is the worst design for a roof conversion which we have ever had to comment on.

We very strongly recommend refusal.

Update  :  30 January 2015  -  Application REFUSED
