New Applications

Use the links below (arranged in application number order within week) to see the details on new applications that Watchdog thinks might be of interest to readers.

In addition to these, we have noticed that the first of the series of listed building applications by Network Rail in preparation for electrification are being lodged.  Although many of the applications for the electrification of the GWR will be outside the area normally covered by Watchdog, we know that a number of our readers are very interested in the plans submitted by Network Rail.  We have therefore created an additional page specifically for Network Rail's electrification applications so that they are all in one place and easy to find.

 

Click on the Application link to read the entry on the planning file.  This link also allows the on-line comment facility to be used, if wished.

Entries will be removed from this page when it is no longer possible to comment on them.

Make Comment

Note 1: The planning file entries shows the Bayer Building as the location address so we have used that in the entries above, but the application drawings make it clear that the address is wrong and the Retained Arches are what is left after the demolitions wrongly given consent (see Note 2) by 16/05348/REG03 (Bath Quays Bridge, Green Park Road) had taken place.
Note 2:  The Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 makes it clear that demolitions of listed and curtilage listed buildings can only take place when a planning permission is granted and a replacement development contract has been placed.  The end of the site containing the Foundry Building and Boiler House and the two removed arches were in the end of the South Quays site which was specifically identified as outline only (it was the west end of the site which had full permission) and the contract placed did not cover any replacement for the now demolished buildings.  The above applications are therefore to repair damage caused by unlawful demolitions.  The council as both applicant and decision maker cannot pretend that they were unaware of this offence.  Bath deserved better.
