1 Pierrepont Street, City Centre
The Trust objects to this application on the basis that the addition of tables and chairs in this location adds clutter to the historic street scene and therefore harmful to multiple heritage assets. The additional chairs and tables are inappropriate and visually intrusive in the already busy street. The Highway has also objected to this application on the basis that the 2.2m highway is unable to support additional seating. In this case the location has obvious access and amenity problems with the application too.
The proposed scheme would neither sustain nor enhance the character and appearance of the conservation area, would detract from special interest and historic setting of multiple listed buildings, and have a harmful impact on the outstanding universal value of the World Heritage Site . Therefore the proposal would be contrary to the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas Act) 1990, Section 16 (Conserving and enhancing the historic environment) of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), policies; B1, B4, B2, and CP6 of the B&NES Core Strategy and policies CP6, HE1, D9, B4 of the Placemaking Plan. We would therefore recommend that the application is refused.
