LP Planning Case Studies

Overnhill Road, Bristol, Avon

Planning appeal for conversion of existing hostel into nine apartments.

Castles Homes Ltd instructed LP Planning to apply to South Gloucestershire Council for the conversion of the existing 21 bedroom hostel to 9 executive flats. The key issues in this case related to access and car parking, design and internal layout, impact on residential amenity and impact on the street scene.

Whilst the application was supported by the highway and planning officers it invited objections from over 60 local residents and was refused planning permission at the development control committee. We were instructed to appeal the decision and were successful and the appeal was allowed.
