DLP Planning’s Bristol Office has secured full planning permission for 2 flats in the Lockleaze area of Bristol.
The application proposed the development of a corner plot, which currently forms the front gardens of nos. 52 and 54 Landseer Avenue. One of the key considerations when designing the building was to ensure it would provide suitable living conditions for future occupants whilst protecting the residential amenity of the neighbouring dwellings. This was particularly crucial with regards to no. 52 as the elevation facing the application site features a window serving a habitable bedroom. Working with We Are Not Architects on the project, the scheme was successfully designed to address these potential issues.
The apartment block is in keeping with the surrounding houses with regards to its size, materials and form. The proposal utilises a render and ‘feature brick’ finish, creating a prominent corner feature which Bristol City Council considered would add interest to the character of the surrounding street scene.
The proposal did not receive any objections from statutory consultees or neighbours and the application was granted planning permission under delegated powers, subject to conditions on 11th July by Bristol City Council.
