Went to Committee on 5 August where there was some sympathy for the public's views but Bristol was a University City and students were important to the economy and they needed to live somewhere. The Chair understood the residents' frustration but could only take into account material considerations. Resolved that planning permission be granted subject to conditions set out in report. 8 for, 1 against and 2 abstentions.

Construction of a new extension to the south of west wing of the Queen's building to provide laboratory & teaching space on the basement & ground floor levels with three floors of offices above.

CAP considered that whilst numerous accretions are appearing on this building which could undermine its architectural value, the positive impact that humanising the scale of this part of Woodland Road will generate is appreciated. There is a need for further archaeological understanding of the site. There is reference to a report, but this doesn't appear to have been submitted with the application.
