Committee meeting 18th January 2007 – notes

Stokes Croft
The City Council has received a planning application to redevelop the triangular piece of land that includes the former Coroner’s Court (originally a Methodist Infant School) and the former Lakota Club. The developer wishes to demolish the former club building because he says that it is in bad condition. KCG believes that the structural report, filed with the application does not support the developer’s reason to demolish. KCG has written to object to the demolition of the former club, which has a good street façade. It supports the development in principle but objects to the demolition of the club, which it believes should be incorporated into the residential development.

The owners of 4/10 Stokes Croft, which has recently been used as a nightclub have applied to demolish the building and to redevelop it with a commercial use on the ground floor with 12 apartments for multi-occupation by students of the second to fifth floors. KCG supports the development of this building but has objected to the design of the street facade because it believes that the design is of insufficient quality. It fails to enhance the Stokes Croft conservation area.
