Bath Heritage Watchdog Not Given O Documents Tab 27/08/2018
Bath Preservation Trust Bath Preservation Trust , 1 Royal Crescent, City Centre, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 2LR R 20/09/2018: Comment: The Trust shares the concerns of the BHW that the proposed works to the façade of the listed building are not sufficiently researched or justified. Whilst we concur that the current multi-pane window arrangement is neither authentic nor an enhancement to the listed building, the submitted report does not provide much in the way of a building specific assessment of need or impact or a historical regression that could underpin, inform and justify the proposal to insert the type and design of windows proposed. This building is a highly visible corner site within the WHS and it is important that any intervention to the listed building not only maintains but enhances it significance. Such an enhancement should be more fully thought through than just copying nearby 20th century shop frontages. 20/09/2018
Patrick Anketell-Jones 9 City View, Walcot, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 5JQ O 16/09/2018: As with the previous application, I object to this new application for the same reasons.
The site occupies a prominent position at the heart of the city within view of the Abbey, directly opposite St Michael’s Without and at the gateway to Broad St, one of Bath’s oldest Streets.
The proposal indicates a reproduction “Victorian” shopfront with plate glass windows to replace several C20th multi pane Georgian windows. The Georgian character windows stand out clearly at this crossroads and are in every way a part of the local character enhancing the city’s Georgian identity. The heritage statement suggests the new windows will contribute to architectural cohesion. This is a poor understanding of the character of the city centre which is notable for the individuality for its shop fronts. It is also claimed the removal of the Georgian character windows will not cause harm because they cover only a small percentage of the building’s volume. Whilst this is true it omits to acknowledge the area covered by the windows is the most visible. People rarely notice elevations above ground floor.
This application will harm the character and appearanceat this busy and every effort should be made to avoid adding to the growth of bland shopfronts.
