TBS response: OBJECT
Recommendation submitted 28-04-18
We are pleased that this Wetherspoons application has been refused, like its predecessors, though sceptical about whether we might see yet another application in due course.
Why? Our previous commentary was as follows:-
Wetherspoons have submitted yet another application to convert 349 Gloucester Road into one of their chain pubs. The only principal changes from their earlier applications are the reduction of the roof terrace with acoustic improvements and the enlargement of the ground floor area with an extension providing a longer trading frontage and a covered pavement café area. But the main problem is the fact that we, like many local residents, do not feel that a large chain pub which will attract customers from all over the city and almost certainly exacerbate local problems of late night noise and antisocial behaviour, is compatible with a family residential area like Bishopston.
