Internal and external alterations for display of 1 set of halo illuminated fascia text to replace existing and 1 externally illuminated projection sign to replace existing. Retention of 1 illuminated menu, 1 illuminated poster holder and 1 illuminated take away sign.
The proposed amount of lighting to the façade, the amount of illuminated signage and its internal illumination would detract from the setting and special interest of nearby listed buildings and would fail to sustain or enhance the character of the conservation area and would detract from the special qualities of the WHS and visual amenity value of this location.
The scheme would be contrary to the Planning (Listed Building and Conservation Areas) Act 1990, Section 16 (Conserving and Enhancing the Historic Environment) section 16 Conserving and enhancing the historic environment’ and Section 12 ‘Achieving Well-Designed Places’ of the NPPF, policies B1, B4, and CP6 of the B&NES Core Strategy and policies CP6, D9, D8, HE1, BD1, B.4, of the Placemaking Plan and should therefore be refused.
