Plans to convert a Colston residential property into a dental surgery are rejected
Planning officers have rejected a change of use application to convert a residential property in Colston into a new dental surgery.
The proposal, which was submitted by Tiwari Watson Dental Care, has been turned down over concerns about a lack of parking in the area. The application included plans to create a practice with four treatment rooms. Tiwari Watson Dental Care’s Joseph Watson, stated that he would like to buy the property and convert it into a dental surgery, but the proposals met with discontent among local people, who expressed concerns over parking.
The property doesn’t have off-road parking and letters were sent to the panel suggesting that it would be impossible for patients and staff to find spaces close to the surgery. There were also concerns about the location of the building, which is close to a junction, and how the change of use would impact road safety. Planning guidelines also recommend two spaces per room, and the practice owners only included proposals for two spaces within the site.
