Internal and external work including removal of paint to window reveals, mouldings, cills and areas of the lower ground floor. Re-instatement of a number of Georgian sashes to make all the windows match again. Replacement of concrete steps to the basement with Bath stone and associated new ironwork.
BPT is supportive of the proposed paint removal to expose the window reveals, and feel that this will improve the appearance of a listed building whilst conforming to the existing finish of the area. In principle, we are supportive of the reinstatement of Georgian-style six-over-six sliding sash windows where this will restore the uniformity of a historic building’s façade or restore a building’s original appearance. However, we would request that more information is supplied regarding the age of the windows intended to be replaced which are described as being “in the Victorian style”. We feel that should these be examples of historic glass, they should be retained and maintained as part of the building’s later Victorian narrative.
