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.

Comments: We would question whether a residential garden could be considered to be 'vacant land' for the purposes of planning. The 2 bedroom dwelling proposed needs to be replanned in order to comply with Technical House Standards, as the bedrooms are way below the 11.5m2 required and the living room is both too small and too narrow. The proposed study is in effect a third bedroom which is not achievable within the 79m2 overall area. Also, the driveway at the side of the house is only 2.4m wide, including the thickness of the proposed boundary wall/fence, which is too narrow to be serviceable. So the extent of garden required for the proposed house would need to be increased.

As submitted, we recommend refusal.

Update, April 18th. This application has been refused.
