External alterations for the conservation of the street sign Great Stanhope Street.
Our Response

1 Great Stanhope Street is a Grade II Georgian townhouse situated within the Bath conservation area and World Heritage site. It marks the intersection between Great Stanhope Street and New King Street. The presence of a cast-iron balcony along the length of the first floor primary elevation has largely overshadowed its incised street sign.

In the interest of transparency, we would like to highlight that the Trust does financially contribute to the works of the World Heritage Enhancement Fund.

We feel this application will positively contribute to and enhance the appearance of a Grade II listed building and the character and appearance of the Bath conservation area, whilst conserving an aspect of Bath’s Georgian streetscape and town planning OUV as a World Heritage site. We feel this is a positive example of the improvement and conservation of one of Bath’s distinctive historic and aesthetic characteristics which define the public realm.
