We note that despite the proposed reactivation of the skittle alley roadside frontage, this application does not provide proposed signage designs or details, despite this constituting an alteration to the appearance of a listed building. We therefore recommend that further information is provided regarding any potential changes of signage to the building frontage, with amended proposed elevations to reflect this. We continue to emphasise that signage should utilise traditional materials and finishes, and be of a recessive appearance to harmonise with, and minimise impact to, the frontage of a listed building, and conserve and enhance the shopfront vernacular appearance and character of the conservation area.
