Patrick Anketell-Jones Guildhall, High Street, City Centre, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 5AW O 16/11/2017: The proposed new windows will match nearby Victorian style plate glass. This will contribute to a growing homogeneity of style that poorly describes the city.
The existing neo Georgian windows add significant distinction to a busy focal point in the city centre and reflect the city's 18th origins. Replacing these windows would be an unacceptable loss to character and they should be retained.

Kristen Elliot 58 Minster Way, Bathwick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6RL O 06/11/2017: I was horrified to see that a given justification for this proposed change is that the planned windows will be 'more historically correct'. Not to put too fine a point on it, this is absolute balderdash. Several illustrations published in the 1830s and the Hollway street panoramas of 1840 clearly show the building with the windows almost as they are now, both in Green Street and Broad Street. (I can supply a couple of examples if required.)

It is unfortunate that this justification was presented in what was described as a heritage statement, as it is perfectly clear that no proper research was carried out at all. The claim that the proposal is more historicaly correct is not backed up by evidence - there isn't any. It is merely wishful thinking.
