A development of 358 residential dwellings and 586sqm of Commercial, Business and Service floorspace and associated works is proposed at Dove Lane, St Pauls. Ref: 22/01736/F
Bristol Civic Society welcomes the development of this site and is broadly supportive of the planning application. Our only real concern relates to the ten-storey block of flats in terms of its height and location close to the A4032. The massing is well considered and frames the view from Portland Square. Quality of living could be improved with a higher proportion of dual aspect homes. However, good quality public amenity space is proposed with a car free central square. More affordable housing units, better distributed would be desirable. We support the low level of vehicle parking spaces in view of the site’s proximity to public transport facilities and the location of parking spaces at the site’s periphery. The development should strive for a high level of energy efficient homes.
