REPORT OF PLANNING APPLICATIONS GROUP TO 25TH JANUARY COMMITTEE
These are some of the more interesting applications discussed by the Group since last report.
The Black Castle PH, Arnos Court, BS4. An application to put a variety of signs on this listed building. We objected.
The Kings Arms PH, High Kingsdown, BS2. An application to convert and extend this public house to 12 student cluster flats with 51 bedspaces plus some office use. In support of the Kingsdown Conservation Group and others we objected to this on the grounds of increased studentification and the disadvantages of this We would support family residential use.
187 Wick Road, Brislington, BS4. The applicant wishes to convert a shop and add 6 flats. We objected to this on the grounds that the shop was part of row of existing shops and that the loss of any of these was unjustified.
The Podium, Broadmead, BS1. The application here is to erect a 50m observation wheel at the Podium. We felt we did not wish to object to this temporary application (Feb-June 2012)
Land to the rear of 91 Whiteladies Road. This site is in fact on the lane running off Cotham Hill shops and is on land at the back of Whiteladies Road. The proposal is to develop it as student bedrooms to the limit of the site. We thought it was an overintensive use of the site and could create a precedent for the whole lane. We objected.
Hawkins Street, Unity Street, Jacob Street, BS2. This is a large site to the east of the Evening Post building which is now a very run-down site. There have been pre-application discussions with the Old Market Residents who have been in contact with us. Our view is that while we feel the application has merit we are not as involved with the discussions as the OMG and prefer to support them in their comments.
Mint Hotel, Temple Way, BS1. This hotel, formerly the City Hotel, is now in the ownership of Hilton Worldwide. They wish to adorn it with various signs which we consider to be excessive. We have written.
Former Bell PH, Bell Hill, BS5. This prominent public house, opposite Colston’s School, has been closed for some time. It has been acquired by Tesco. We have no problem with this but, as always, we have a problem with the signage which we think is excessive.
