Troika Planning Application - Riverside Avenue

You may recall that 3 years ago, despite Jane and I fighting this proposed development on land behind the hospital, it was approved at Appeal by the Inspectorate at Bristol.  Now, 3 years on, an application has been submitted to extend the time limit for the implementation of the planning permission.  Although the scale of the development was reduced by the Inspector at Appeal, it remains a substantial development of over 24,600 square metres of office space plus parking on site.

Our concern is particularly the scale of the development and the negative impact on our local road infrastructure in an already heavily burdened traffic area.  Additionally it will impact on the many elderly residents who reside at the Retired Nurses Home in Riverside Avenue whose outlook will change from  green space to a four storey office building.  If you are minded to object to this application to extend their planning permission time, please do put your objections in writing to Planning at the Town Hall, Bourne Avenue - for the attention of Mr Barry Carse, Planning Officer. 

If you require one of our pro-forma letters please do get in touch with me.  I am 'calling in' the application meaning it cannot be determined by a planning officer but must instead go before the Planning Board - this gives us and residents the opportunity to make a deputation to the Board.

I will let you know when this will take place, probably July or August.  Closing date for objection letters to be in is the 18th June.
