Update from SWNA Brooks planning group

Wednesday 12 October 2016

The outline planning application for the Brooks site has reached a critical stage in the planning process. The application will be decided at the development control committee meeting of Wednesday 19th October. The meeting will take place at City Hall, College Green starting at 6pm, although the Brooks application is being heard last so may not start being discussed until around 8pm. Members of the public are entitled to attend the meeting, and are also able to make a statement to the committee, subject to advance notice being received. Further information on making a statement is contained in the leaflet titled “Having your say at Bristol City Council’s Development Control Committees” at Please note that the statement should be sent to the Democratic Services Team by 12 noon on the day before the committee meeting and not the case officer.

A copy of the BCC Officer’s report and recommendation to the development control committee is now available at the following location on the Bristol City Council website

In the Conclusions section towards the end of the Officer’s report are the recommendations to the committee that the application be approved subject to a number of planning conditions. The headline recommendation is that 24 of the 102 dwellings should be secured as affordable units via the signing of a Section 106 legal agreement. The demolition of the chimney is not being contested by the Council on viability grounds. Further details on the application can be found at the following location on Bristol City Council’s website

We will endeavour to keep you posted with further developments.R Brooks Planning Group, 12th October 2016
