This section provides a commentary on planning applications and developments and the work we do in this area. From June 2018 it relies on links to our new planning portal for details of specific applications, and complements this by offering a broader thematic treatment. Also from June 2018, this section covers individual planning applications and wider developments, which were previously presented in separate sections.

planningapplications The Bishopston Society is concerned about this application for a bulky 2 storey side extension, full width dormer to the rear and the loss of the hip end and two chimneys to the roof.

Alcohol License A public consultation meeting will be held between 1 – 8pm on Monday 25th April at the Memorial Ground.  J D Wetherspoon will be presenting their revised proposals for 349 Gloucester Road in advance of submitting their further (3rd) planning application.

planningapplications The Bishopston Society has given this application careful consideration and is concerned about the proposal for an external balcony at first floor level which would overlook the rear garden of 133 Ashley Down Road alongside.

planningapplications The Bishopston Society is very concerned about this conversion proposal into three flats. The internal arrangements are not satisfactory in terms of access, fire escape, daylighting and do not comply with Building Regulations. We consider that this application is overdevelopment and totally inappropriate. We recommend refusal.
