A plot of land once used for housing in a suburb of Bristol has remained vacant for many years


A plot of land once used for housing in a suburb of Bristol has remained vacant for many years and has attracted complaints from local residents about rubbish and other nuisance. The Council has served notices under the provisions of the Town and Country Planning Act to deal with the problems.

The Council offered to purchase the land by agreement but this was refused. The owner has tried several times to get planning approval for the site but some of his aspirations for the site were unrealistic and his applications were unsuccessful. Officers from the Empty Property Unit (EPU) have met the owner and planners on site and written to the owner on many occasions to try to facilitate the redevelopment of the site.

The owner has now received planning approval for an appropriate level of development but building progress on this has been very slow. The Council are now moving towards a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) for the site to ensure early completion of new units of accommodation.
