Recommendation submitted 17-10-17

It is clear from the plans and the extensive objections received from local residents and users of the Ardagh Pavilion that the proposals have been designed without proper consultation and that there are significant practical problems.

Ardagh Pavilion 1

We suggest that the application be withdrawn and the design reviewed in the light of consultation with the community at large.

We would also question the robustness of a semi permanent structure in a remote public park location.

Mr John Osmond 26 APPLEGATE BRISTOL   OBJECT

It's unlikely the cafe will be open full time and this will restrict use by tennis players andfamilies using the playground on the common

Mrs Kathleen Selway 5 WOODHOUSE GROVE BRISTOL   SUPPORT

I fully support this proposal as it will help to make the current facility more accessible toall members of the community, and will be an asset for the area as a whole.

Mrs Jenny O'Brien  80 KENNINGTON AVENUE BRISTOL   SUPPORT

Improving the cafe facilities to make it in to a profitable business that can support thecommon in the face of council budget cuts is vital. Presumably the canopy area can be openedeven when the cafe is not to provide access to the toilets, and the interior of the bowling clubrejigged to provide changing facilities. We go to the common frequently, using the playground,cafe and toddler group and would love to see the pavilion improved. A proper cafe and communityhub would be a huge asset and allow other community groups to use the common as well.

Mrs Wendy Godfrey 148 FILTON AVENUE HORFIELD BRISTOL   OBJECT

When Cafe canopy erected it will be over drains covers.

There will be no access for the Greenkeeper to get his mower and other equipment onto theGreen as the other side of the Club House has a number of steps which are not shown on theplans.

We host a monthly Cream Tea afternoon during the summer for Care Home residents most ofwhom use wheelchairs or mobility scooters, they will be unable to attend.

No access for Lady Bowlers to enter their changing room from the Club House, new toilets take upthe space of entry used at present. The only Exit/Entry will be through a "Fire Door" which is notappropriate and is illegal.

Where are the Gas/Electricity meters to be situated when the cupboard they are in at present isconverted into a toilet?

Do the Cafe intend to open every day, summer and winter until 11.00pm? If not, and the Club isused for a function either Private/Bowling/Skittles/Toddlers etc: how are Ladies supposed to usethe Toilet facilities?

There will be no changing rooms available for the General Public to use i.e. Tennis Players.

Obviously no thought has gone into these plans from the Bowling Clubs point of view, or for

anyone else who might wish to use the premises.

I'm a Nana who has brought and still brings babies and toddlers to the Monday morninggroup at The Ardagh.Without good toilet and nappy changing facilities this group could not function. It's so popular andoffers an essential derive to young Mums, child minders and grandparents caring for children.Everyone loves this group. We also need easy acces to parking and access for emergencyvehicles.I'm a Reception Teacher and know exactly how important this provision is to early yearsdevelopment and education.If this cafe opens in it's planned format it will be a terrible loss to Bristol. PLEASE LOOK ATALTERNATIVES.Thank you Susan Hill.

Mrs Suzanne Padmore 117 KELLAWAY AVENUE BRISTOL   SUPPORT

As a member of the local community who has used the toddler group, the common andplayground with my young family, I strongly support these proposals. The proposals are notintended to limit the use or functioning of the Bowling club or toddler group. This café facility wouldbe an enormous asset to a well used public area. It also creates the opportunity for localemployment and to raise funds for the benefit of the park which is facing zero funding from theCouncil. Increasing the facilities available at the Ardargh will increase the use of the common as awhole by the community, encouraging exercise and fresh air and community engagement. Theimprovement of the tennis courts would be an excellent sports facility available for all ages.

Mrs Rebecca Lockyer 28 BEECH RD BRISTOL   SUPPORT

As someone who has lived two streets away from Horfield Common since 1993 I knowonly too well how important it is to local families, dog owners, joggers and cyclists etc.

This proposal is about ensuring that the common stays as an asset to the local community despitethe austerity cuts which have left our parks with the prospect of zero council funding by 2019. Torefuse this application will actively hinder the possibility of the common being self-sustaining,producing an income and being able to maintain public facilities that otherwise may well be lostafter 2019.

Ms Elizabeth Porter 35 WELLINGTON HILL HORFIELD BRISTOL   SUPPORT

I've lived in this area since 2001. When I first moved in the Ardargh seemed to be arelatively uncared for facility. (Apologies if it wasn't.. it definitely seemed that way at the time).

In the last few years I have seen a lot of time and effort put in by volunteers to improve the area,including the cafe, the tennis courts, the wildlife areas... the whole area... as well as the increasein social activities. Progress has been good - the buzz around the common is vastly improved fromwhen I arrived.

Much of the activities are weather dependent, and it would be a wonderful improvement to havesome form of semi permanent space to be able to use.

I'm fully behind this planning application. I can only see it as an advantage to a community that isreally working together nowadays.

Miss Rebecca Walker 80 RADNOR ROAD BRISTOL   SUPPORT

As a local resident with two young children I regularly use the common and think apermanent café and hub would be an excellent addition. The temporary café has shown that thereis a need and demand for this facility and I can only see that it would enhance peoples use of thecommon and bring the community together. I really do hope this happens.

Ms Nicky Biggs 58B THE CRESCENT HENLEAZE BRISTOL   SUPPORT

Splendid idea. The continued revitalisation of Horfield Common can only be furtheruplifted by fulfilment of these plans

Ms Caitlin Murphy 23 LONGMEAD AVENUE BISHOPSTON BRISTOL   SUPPORT

I'm a mum who has used the toddler's group and also regularly use the cafe. I think thata permanent cafe and hub would be of benefit to the local community. Being open year round andaccessible to those with disabilities would be a huge improvement. I am fully in support of this,especially at a time when public funding is being cut by the council. It seems like a great way tokeep this space for our community.

work can change.They can hang clothes, leave shoes and their wheeled bags instead of cluttering the main club room.

Please arrange a visit to discuss this with the club who so far appear to have been sidlined. Contact Mrs K. Tomson Chair person.

Mr thomas troop 17 SEYMOUR AVENUE BRISTOL   OBJECT

I don't think the ardagh club pavilion should be changed as it would loose its beautifulsetting and as I have seen on the plans it would make access for my daughter in her wheel quitehard as there are steps at the other end of the club and it would have to made wheel chair friendlyalso there is a toddler group at the club also the toilets are in use from early in the day till lateevening to alter this would stop toddlers.bowlers.tennis players.dog walkers .and families using them I don't think we need a need a lightweight canopied as it would spoil thelook of the club it should remain as it is not made modern

Mrs Leonella Fasulo 183 DOVERCOURT ROAD BRISTOL   SUPPORT

Please let this happen!!! Would be wonderful for the area, the neighbours, the users,everyone! Yes there will be some short term disruption but it would be a massive long term gain!Here's hoping!

Ms Francesca Scott 17 BEECH ROAD BRISTOL   SUPPORT

Apologies if I sent this twice. My computer crashed just as I was about to send, so I'mnot sure if it went though...

I live a few streets away from the common with young children, and we spend a lot of time in thepark and cafe. We really value this beautiful green space within the city, and the community itopens up to us. I feel that improvements to the facilities would be of real value to the public, andstrengthen this sense of community. We truly hope it goes ahead.

Mrs Dianne Wilson 46 HENLEAZE PARK DRIVE HENLEAZE BRISTOL   OBJECT

I have lived around this area all my life and have used Ardagh throughout this time formyself, family and now for myself and grandchildren.Having seen the proposed plans I have numerous concerns and cannot see how this could benefitall.At present Ardagh is used by all ages from toddlers to the elder members of the community whoeither bowl or enjoy coming to sit and watch bowls, as well as numerous events in the club fromtoddlers, bowls, skittles, community activities open events.The suggested plans will:Restrict wheelchair access to young and old as no ramps.Public toilets would not be available unless cafe opened.The toddler session would have no access to toilets.Access for any emergency vehicles and staff would be restricted/ blocked.Fire access restricted.No access to ladies changing rooms for bowls

Mr Jeffrey Wilson 46 HENLEAZE PARK DRIVE HENLEAZE BRISTOL   OBJECT

Having seen the proposed plans I wish to object on the grounds ofRestricted access to wheelchairs and praysRestricted access to toilets every dayRestricted access to emergency appliances if requiredRestricted fire door access.

Rather than restricting this club house I am sure if the tennis courts were improvedThis would encourage more people young and old to exercise and help keep fit.

Mrs Claire Griffiths  3 MANX ROAD HORFIELD BRISTOL   SUPPORT

This will enhance/ add to horfield common

Dr Thea Morgan-Smith 110 THE CRESCENT HENLEAZE BRISTOL   SUPPORT

This is a fantastic proposal, and likely to be much welcomed by the local community. Myyoung children and I use the common daily, and love the cafe when it's open, especially thecommunity events. If this facility could be open all year round then so much the better. Especiallywith improved access for all. An important and wonderful hub for the local community.

Mr KENNETH LEWIS 1A LUCKINGTON ROAD HORFIELD BRISTOL   OBJECT

I STRONGLY OBJECT to this application in its current form, for the following reasons:-

Principally it fails to address the needs of the wider community. In particular, it seeks tomarginalise the activities of the Ardagh Bowling Club, by reducing its facilities, with a poorlyconsidered and impractical physical layout. Such a development would have a detrimental impacton the range of community activities already established in the building. These activities rangefrom Parent & Toddler Groups and a Gardening Club to social events organised by local groupsand families. The Bowling Club has clearly demonstrated its commitment to the wider communityuse.

The Bowling Club also provides a valuable recreational and sporting facility to older members ofthe local community, who are often overlooked. The City Council has an obligation to consider theneeds of all age-groups and not just those of one particular group.

The Application has not been subject of any meaningful discussion or consultation with theBowling Club. Unfortunately, this omission has clearly impacted on the quality of the proposalshown.

The application, as submitted, raises issues of a practical nature. There are concerns about theadequacy of access for emergency vehicles, the availability of toilet facilities for the general public,access for disabled people and the loss of female changing facilities, not to mention fire doors tothe Club house.

I urge the committee to refuse this application in its current form and invite a fresh application,following full and proper discussion amongst the interested parties. This is more likely to produce afully supported scheme, putting the needs of the wider community at the forefront.

Mrs Patricia Lewis 1A LUCKINGTON ROAD HORFIELD BRISTOL   OBJECT

Access will be restricted to disabled persons, visitors as well as bowlers as it seemsthere will be an alternative way to the rear of the Pavillion.I cannot see wheelchair users taking this approach as there are steps to navigate.Public Toilets?The Bowling Club (Pavillion) will have two Fire Exit Points blocked up!Where will the Ladies Bowling changing room/toilets will be? No thought for the Services (Fire,Ambulance etc) to gain access to rear.Facilities for Green Keepers machinery/garden tools.Will access to drain covers be covered at the side of the Pavillion restricting access?

Mr Paul Beardmore 13 ALDERTON RD HORFIELD BRISTOL   OBJECT

I object to the plan as there is a loss of amenities :No public toiletsNo ladies toilets for use in pavilion for toddlers, bowlers, skittles and other public events i.eweddings, birthdaysAccess to side of building obstructed for wheelchair users, equipment and emergency services2 fire exits blocked1 room inaccessible in plan

Mr Leslie Wells 96 SUTHERLAND AVENUE DOWNEND BRISTOL   OBJECT

The primary access to the main entrance of the clubhouse for disabled visitors,especially for wheelchair users, will be non-existent with the proposal in PROPOSED ELEVATION1, and will also cause access issues for the emergency services if ever required.

The existing door to the kitchen and mess room (which the council agreed the bowling club coulduse as a ladies changing room) will no longer exist. This will force those wanting to use thechanging room to walk around half of the building to enter via what is presently an emergency exit.

The KITCHEN and METERS are shown as being within the APPLICATION but I believe they areactually OUTSIDE OF APPLICATION as there is no external access to them. I believe thedrawings may be incorrect and would like this investigated.

In Section 14 - Existing Use, the statement ends "however, the area relating to this application iscurrently unused". This a factually incorrect as this area contains both Men's and Ladies changingrooms and public toilet facilities and visiting bowlers and tennis players change in there onoccasions. Should the application be accepted, there would not be any public facilities.

On page 10 of the DESIGN_AND_ACCESS_STATEMENT there is "New opening between caféand veranda" (VERANDAH?). This new opening is exactly in the position where the "hut" thebowling club store equipment for the bowling green, woods etc. There is no mention of whatreplacement bowlers would be provided with.

The proposed materials for the structure of the "hub" are completely out of context with the

existing finish of the building.

Finally, there has been no discussion whatsoever between the Ardagh Community Trust (ACT)and Ardagh Bowling & Sports Club.

Mrs Valerie Wells 96 SUTHERLAND AVENUE DOWNEND BRISTOL   OBJECT

I strongly object to this Application in its current form as follows:-

Restricted access to the rear of the Pavillion for disabled persons, visitors and bowlers. Thealternative way has steps.

No mention of public toilets for use when the cafe is closed.

Fire exits in the Pavillion will be blocked off, no alternatives shown on the Plan.

No thought seems to have been given to access for the Emergency Services (ambulance, fire) tothe rear of the property.

Access would be restricted for the greenkeeper's machinery and equipment to the bowling greenalso for deliveries to the Pavillion.

Facilities provided by the Ardagh Bowling and Sports Club to a Toddlers Group, functions held atthe Pavillion would be restricted as no toilet and changing facilities shown on the Plan.

The boiler room does not appear to have been relocated on the Plan.

The hut at the rear, currently used for storage of bowling equipment also not shown to berelocated.

No notification to Ardagh Bowling and Sports Club (the current longstanding tenants of thePavillion) of this Application.

This gets my full support!

As a local resident, I have been coming to the park and the Ardagh with my sons for the last 5years (and was a regular at the toddler group). With the playground refurbished and the existingcafe which has been a great addition, these have become a social hub for our community. Byhaving a permanent cafe it will be more accessible all year round (which we need). It will be anenormous benefit/asset and will further bring our community together.

I can't see any reason for this not to happen, it will be a positive change for all users of theArdagh.

Mr Andre Gilleard 58 CHURCH ROAD HORFIELD   SUPPORT

The aims of the project..." creating opportunities for local people to connect and engagewith opportunities which reduce social isolation and increase civic pride and communityresilience"... are to be applauded.I fully support the application.In terms of toilets and changing facilities, there were originally two sets, one at the eastern endand one at the western end of the building. This application removes the changing facilities at thewestern end, but the bowls club still retain their (equally sized) changing and WC facilitates at theeastern end. There can thus be no objections on those grounds. There have been a fewcomments about access to a toilet outside of cafe hours and in this respect (including my family) Isuggest that the northern-most new toilet has it's door changed so that it opens directly outside(northern building face) rather than through the cafe.

Mrs Jill Molyneux 124 KELLAWAY AVENUE BRISTOL BRISTOL   SUPPORT

I am a regular visitor at the Ardagh the cafe, events and tennis courts. I know theArdagh toddlers group well having brought both my children there. I have made some very goodfriends through my association with Ardagh. So it was with some shock and disbelief when Ireceived emails recently requesting me to object to these plans.I had to look into it myself.When I looked at the proposed plans I couldn't see what the furore was about, it looks like a goodidea trying to bring the Ardagh building (part of) into a more accessible and modernised state.I have now had a chat with Sam and as I had already presumed she has the community's bestinterests at heart, I don't see these plans having a negative effect on the Ardagh but the opposite.I would therefore like to support these plans and hope that this secures a better and brighter futurefor this special place.

Ms C Widdowson  75 CHURCH ROAD HORFIELD   SUPPORT

Support the provision of a new café - will be a great asset for the local community andusers Horfield Common.

Ms Alison Collyer 220 KELLAWAY AVENUE BRISTOL   SUPPORT

The current cafe has been a tremendous boost to the community, encouraging peopleto talk, get to know each other and provide support. Many users now help by tidying the commonof rubbish as they walk around. For some it has proved a real life line, providing company or theopportunity to just be in presence of others, reducing loneliness. The proposal will enable the cafeto provide a much needed service all year around & not just in the summer months & fair weather.It has my full support

Miss Kerry Macleod 117 A ASHLEY DOWN ROAD BRISTOL   SUPPORT

Our household frequently uses this fantastic local resource with our young son andelderly parents. If the facilities can be improved further this can only be a great thing for the widecommunity that use it. The Friends of Horfield Common are such a positive group of hard-workingpeople, their tireless efforts have made an exceptional difference to both the facilities, events thatrun on the common and general feeling of a real community space. People of all ages, regularlyuse the cafe, ranging from young families to older people who live on their own but make comingto the Cafe on the Common a daily focus and place to go to have a friendly chat on the days that itis open. If a more permanent building can enable the cafe to be open on more days and providebetter shelter for the young and old that would be a great thing. The Ardagh area is a for all andnot just the few. The building will have a much more secure future for the whole community toenjoy if these renovations take place.

Mrs B Riddle WESSEX AVENUE BRISTOL   OBJECT

Why try and fix something that isn't broken?! The Ardagh Bowling Club was started in1926 and although the clubs facilities have been updated over the years and new featuresintroduced to the interior of the building, the exterior has seen little change. It suits the needs ofthe Bowling Club, and more recently the toddlers group which uses the club facilities during theweek along with OAPs who regularly use the club as a 'meeting place'. The hire of the club out toprivate functions has proved successful with a wedding reception / evening function being one ofthe most recent.

The proposed new structure is certainly not sympathetic to the current structure and the CaféCanopy will limit the access to the club from the right hand which, in turn, will affect access forwheelchair users and the disabled. I also know that the grounds man, who tends the bowlinggreen, will struggle to manoeuvre his specialist equipment to the left hand side of the currentbuilding due to steps and a sloping camber.

I know that the cafe have been granted £250,000 of capital funding to make improvements to theArdagh pavilion building. So, I must ask the question......Why is this money not being used to builda permanent café structure on the existing site and leave the Ardagh Bowling Club alone? I alsoknow that the café is currently using the top tennis court as an overspill. Can't this old tennis courtbe used as 'outside/undercover' seating for customers of the aforementioned café?

All I see is this new venture being a power trip for Ms Sam Thomson who, I've been told, has herfingers in too many pies in and around the Bristol area.

Mr Ian Selway 5 WODHOUSE GROVE BRISTOL   SUPPORT

I support this application because i believe these facilities would benefit a wider crosssection of the local community.

Mr Brian Godfrey 148 FILTON AVENUE HORFIELD BRISTOL   OBJECT

Leave the pavilion exterior alone. This will destroy the ambience and the proposed newstructure is certainly not sympathetic to the current structure.

The Café Canopy will limit the access to the club from the right hand. This will, in turn, causeproblems for the grounds man and his ability to maintain the Bowling Green with his specialistequipment, as access via the left hand side is inadequate. It will also make access to the clubextremely difficult, if not impossible, for wheelchair users and the disabled as well as the toddlersgroup with pushchairs.

It has also been proven just recently that direct access into the main clubhouse area is ofparamount importance and access would be made difficult for emergency vehicles i.e., ambulanceand fire brigade, if the new toilets were situated where proposed.

I am surprised that none of this has been discussed with, or picked up by the Architects whenvisiting the site?!

Why can the existing café site not be improved? I understand they currently have access to waterand electricity. If they have £250,000 capital funding to make improvements to the Ardagh pavilionbuilding, why not use this money to build a permanent café structure on the existing site and usethe adjoining tennis court as a seating overspill, which will save it from currently looking likesomething from the third world!

Mrs Janet Wigley LITTLECOTE LEIGH WOODS BRISTOL   SUPPORT

I agree with the proposal as I use the facilities on a regular basis and it would avoidhaving to have coffee in the Tesco supermarket across the road. This is expensive and often verybusy so waiting is annoying.

I look forward to hearing how the application proceeds.

Mrs Amy Poole 52 HILL VIEW HENLEAZE BRISTOL   SUPPORT

I think that a new cafe is a fantastic idea. The current outdoor facilities are excellent,and extremely well run and tastefully designed/environmentally friendly, but are restricted by theweather. They organise lots of events/projects that bring the community together. It would be awonderful resource for the local area. It would also help to fund and improve the current buildingand tennis courts, and would therefore be positive for the bowling club too.

As someone who uses the present cafe, I have got to know a number of people in thecommunity.It serves a very good social purpose and is a shame it is not open all year.

The bowls club have waited a long time for the council to agree a lease. The bold clubcan then develop the pavillion as they wish.The new proposal is totally lacking in practicality, health and safety. The existing area of the cafeis large enough forA new build cafe and toilets.

Mrs J Waters 41 TERESLAKE GREEN BRISTOL   OBJECT

The easiest access to the clubhouse for all visitors is around the side where theproposed hub will be, and this includes a ramp for wheelchair users. The size of the "extension" assuch will block this off, and there is no other alternative without steps.

Access for our green keeper, the emergency services and even council employees would berestricted.

With the existing door to the ladies changing room being blocked-off, it is totally unacceptable forthose of a "senior" age to have to walk perhaps ten times the distance to get to the room afterhaving come off the bowling green, especially if it's raining.

When the café is closed, where are the nearest public toilets?
