|The Bull - when it was open in 2003|
The Parish Council has written to residents:
Last year the owner of the Bull Public House applied for planning permission to construct two houses and car barn in the garden facing the main Green. Both the Borough and Parish Council Planning Committees strongly objected to this proposal and the permission was refused.
Recently the owner has appealed to the Inspectorate at
to see if they will overturn this decision. Naturally both Borough and Parish
Council will object in the strongest possible terms but support from local residents
reinforces this opinion in the eyes of the Inspectorate.
We would therefore ask if you would support the Parish Council by voicing your opposition to this proposal and writing to
Bristol quoting the reference number and
address and using the bullet points illustrated below towards your objection.
We cannot produce a “stock” letter as this will not be accepted so it must be in your own words. Letters of objection should be sent in triplicate and received by 12th May at the address below.

The following points would be very useful to include in your letter – please word as you feel best fits your letter
· The property is in a Conservation Area and this development would contravene Planning conditions CP1.
· The development would have a detrimental visual impact of the Grade II listed building when viewed from the Green.
· With the construction in the garden there would be reduced amenity area that would lower
· customer appeal.
· Both Brentwood Borough and Blackmore Parish Council strongly object to the plan.
· By demolishing the outbuildings the possibility of the building operating as a public house would be impossible.
· The garden is an extension of the main Green historically and should not be developed in any way.
· Vehicle access to the properties would be onto a narrow road at the top of the Green.
· A petition of over 1000 names against this development has been produced.
