BTF response: NEUTRAL

Under "Constraints" TPO 331 is mentioned. There is a TPO Scots Pine in the rear garden of this property and a TPO Yew tree in the front garden of the house on the corner of Carmarthen Road and Radnor Rd. But It do not think that TPO 331 includes the tree in the front garden of the index property. If it is included in the TPO 331 then it should not be felled. But if it is not a TPO tree it is nevertheless a tree that is being lost to development and hence should be replaced somewhere, in mitigation for its loss, under the Bristol Tree Replacement Standard Supplementary Planning Conditions.

My children go to St Ursulas, it can be dangerous when walking in with the kids, due tothe amount of parked cars and blocked visibility in and around the roads by the school. Anyopportunity to have the roads in and around less congested is welcomed.

The proposed work would negatively affect the character of the road, by removing thefence, gate and tree and opening up the front for further vehicular access. While such work hasbeen carried out in neighbouring streets (eg Cavendish Road), it has completely changed theirappearance for the worse. It is not in keeping with houses of their period. Also, no other houses onRadnor Road have been changed in this way. It would be unprecedented.

As a daily user of the road, my opinion is that there is not a need for passing spaces, nor ashortage of on-road parking. I cannot recall a time when I have been 'stuck' at that point in theroad or struggled to find nearby parking. Furthermore, given climate change and transport plans tocurb car use, the current arrangement seems to fit both with the past and the future.

Apologies - I am a little confused here. Under "Constraints" TPO 331 is mentioned.There is a TPO Scots Pine in the rear garden of this property and a TPO Yew tree in the frontgarden of the house on the corner of Carmarthen Road and Radnor Rd. But It do not think thatTPO 331 includes the tree in the front garden of the index property. If it is included in the TPO 331then it should not be felled.But if it is not a TPO tree it is nevertheless a tree that is being lost to development and henceshould be replaced somewhere, in mitigation for its loss, under the Bristol Tree ReplacementStandard Supplementary Planning Conditions.Thanks

The alteration will be in keeping with the style and character of the property andsurrounding properties.

At the moment the property can only effectively accommodate one parked car. This improvementwill mean two + cars c will be parked on the property thus alleviating parking congestion in theneighbourhood. It will also provide a much needed passing space in the road.

We therefore have no objections and support this proposed development.

I think this would really help the flow of traffic on this narrow road as it would reduce onstreet parking and allow space to pull in and let cars travelling in the opposite direction past.Reduced on street parking would also improve safety when crossing the road as stepping outbetween parked cars makes it difficult to see until the last minute, and lots of children have tocross this road on their way to/from school/activities at Shine

opening this driveway out will really help passing traffic as at the moment there isnowhere really to pull in if you meet a car coming the other way
