Prezzo in Brunel Square has made a retrospective application for a condenser unit currently situated to the rear of the premises within Bath Spa Railway Station which is a Grade II Listed Building, a heritage gem by Brunel. This area got a beautiful face lift that won prizes, but the bit round the back, in clear view from some of the properties on St Mark’s Road, has been turned into an ugly, smelly service yard.
The objection in planning terms is that the unit should not be placed in a Grade II Listed area and need to be better camouflaged by greenery according to business regulations, along with the whole service yard. Prezzo’s application claims that they are already camouflaged, but this is not the case! The other unit is used by Gourmet Burger Kitchen.
At this point we residents have a chance to object and ask that you show some support.
The application can be viewed HERE on the Bath & North East Somerset Council website.
In addition to this Be At One cocktail bar has placed tables and chairs with parasols and lights without planning permission.
We are also concerned with the annoying smells which appear to be coming from the restaurants on Brunel Square next to Bath Spa Station. More on this can be found on our Planning Applications page.
