Planning applications

Good news – Both UBHT schemes withdrawn

Thanks to everyone who wrote in objecting to the two unsuitable building schemes that the United Bristol Hospitals Trust had submitted for planning approval (see earlier items, with pictures, below). The City Council Planning Department say they told UBHT that both applications would be refused, and UBHT then withdrew them.

UBHT may just be biding their time and waiting for the property market to pick up. We can, of course, expect new applications to be made in due course, and we hope that the Trust will then genuinely take note of the very sensible and reasonable views of local residents, instead of just ignoring them. That would save a lot of time and effort for all concerned, and might even lead to a scheme we could simply support.

Thanks again, but stay vigilant.
