Public Comments

The Bishopston Society  OBJECT

The Bishopston Society is concerned about this application. The former MethodistChurch has only recently been selected by the planning department as a Building of Merit withinthe Gloucester Road Conservation Area. We consider that the proposed container outlet wouldsubstantially detract from the church, which marks the limit of the Conservation Area and theintersection of the Gloucester Road with Berkeley and Sommerville Roads. Furthermore, we arenot convinced that there is a need for a pavement food outlet when there are already so manyexcellent cafes serving healthy food in the area. We recommend refusal.

Mrs Tamsin Poole  9 LYE MEAD WINFORD   SUPPORT

I think this is a fantastic idea! Whilst there are many eateries on Glos Road there are nohealthy options that you can quickly grab on your lunch break.

I think this takeaway would be a brilliant asset to Glos Road and certainly make the area a moredesirable place to visit in knowing that you can always get something healthy and fresh!

Mrs N Holland 195 GLOUCESTER RD BISHOPSTON BRISTOL   SUPPORT

I believe this would be a great addition to our versatile rd adding to what is already avibrant forward thinking community.

Having visited similar concepts in London this really is a great idea and will only add to the greatdiverse shops we are lucky to have on our doorstep. will look great too.

Mr John Payne 53 ZETLAND ROAD, BRISTOL BS6 7AJ   OBJECT

Bristol Civic Society objects strongly to this proposal. A converted container wouldexacerbate the harm to the appearance of the former Methodist chapel already caused byexcessive advertising. The proposed use is likely to increase the deposit of litter in the vicinity. Itwould in no way preserve or enhance the character of the conservation area and would be harmfulto it.

Miss Anna Tenbroeke 145 GLOUCESTER ROAD BISHOPSTON BRISTOL   SUPPORT

Very welcomed for local traders. Just what we need!

Miss Lucinda Smith 38 CROMWELL ROAD BRISTOL   SUPPORT

Sounds great!

Mrs Davinia Harper THE NAIL SHED 78 GLOUCESTER ROAD BRISTOL   SUPPORT

All of us at the Nail Shed would welcome this proposed development that would createan alternative lunch offering. Although we acknowledge there are lots of great eateries in this area,they don't serve as quick, healthy takeaways during our lunch breaks and we feel this leaves a biggap in the market. We also feel that the intended site would really benefit from the landscapingand general rejuvenation that this project would bring.

Mr SIMON ELLICOTT 65 ASHGROVE ROAD BRISTOL   SUPPORT

I live and work in the area and struggle to find a good sandwich anywhere! Oftenresorting to buying processed foods from supermarkets. I would much rather eat fresh food andsupport another local business. I think it would really add to the offerings available and wouldprovide a convenient place to buy lunch quickly during the working day. I also often cycle to workand would appreciate the opportunity to keep my bike in a safe place by using the intended bikestands.
