Bath Preservation Trust Bath Preservation Trust , 1 Royal Crescent, City Centre, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 2LR O 19/10/2017: Object: As the Sawclose and Casino public realm is built out and finalised it is extremely important that the character of the outdoor seating areas is closely managed and planned. In this case we find the larger Zizzi sign acceptable but not the smaller acrylic lettering, which should be a better quality material such as metal or timber. We have an in principle objection to internal illumination in the historic core of the city but recognise that some form of subtle illumination of the main sign is probably justified. The plethora of branding on the jumbrellas and planters should be rationalised so that there is less signage clutter in this area. We would suggest, as per the Giggling Squid, that there is small ‘Zizzi’ lettering on the jumbrella valances (not the large branding proposed on the jumbrella slopes) and that the branding is omitted from the planters. This sensitive historic area could cumulatively become visually disordered if signage was permitted on every piece of furniture (see Vino Vino and The Oven for an example of low quality public realm created by signage). In particular we refer to Policy D.9 regarding taking opportunities to reduce signage and to D.10 regarding enhancing the public realm.
The noted parts of the proposed signage by virtue of its amount and siting would be harmful to the setting of significant nearby designated heritage assets, would neither preserve nor enhance the character and appearance of the conservation area, would be detrimental to the visual amenity of the street scene and would detract from the special qualities of the WHS. The scheme would be contrary to Section 12 (Conserving and Enhancing the Historic Environment) of the NPPF, policies B1, B2, B4, and CP6 of the B&NES Core Strategy and policies CP6, D.2, HE1, D.9,D.10, B.2 of the Placemaking Plan. We would therefore recommend the application be amended in-line with our proposals or refused.
