Two Planning Applications by Henbury Lodge Hotel

Two applications were submitted at the end of last month. They were applications numbered  21/00194/F and  21/00195/LA. You can view them here:

Both seem to be similar are are for a 5m ‘temporary’ building replacing existing sheds  and reaching almost to the west boundary.

I have made comments on behalf of the Conservation Society objecting to the large structure in the curtilage of the fine grade II listed structure.

Woodstock School – PLANNING APPLICATION 20/04520/LA

This application for an external canopy along the Stable Block has been refused by the planners. Here is a link to front elevation of proposed canopy.

The planner’s reason for refusal is:-

” The proposal would result in harm to the architectural and historical significance of the building which is Listed as Grade II level. This would result from the impact of the introduction of the proposed canopy, which would represent an incongruous form of
development. The proposed canopy would also result in harm to the character and appearance of the building and its setting within the former Henbury Manor site by virtue of its overall scale and massing. These factors pose harm to the significance of the Listed
Building and Conservation Area which is classified at less than substantial level. Insufficient public benefit can be attributed to the development to outweigh the harm posed to either heritage asset. The development is therefore directly contrary to Sections 66 and
72 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990, Sections 12 and 16 of the National Planning Policy Framework (2019), Policy BCS21 of the Bristol Core
Strategy (2011) and Policies DM26, DM30 and DM31 of the Site Allocations and Development Management Policies Local Plan (2014). “
