11 Royal Crescent, City Centre
11 Royal Crescent forms part of a Grade I Georgian terraced crescent situated within the Bath conservation area and World Heritage Site, overlooking the Grade I listed Victoria Park. The Royal Crescent is one of Bath’s most significant surviving examples of monumental grand design, intended as a key visual landmark within the city, and Georgian innovation in town planning, fundamental aspects of the OUV of the World Heritage site.
We acknowledge the need for remedial repairs to the Victorian three-storey extension. However, we are surprised that the increased parapet height of 275mm, or 27.5cm, doesn’t appear to have been reflected in the Proposed Elevations. We further note that the Proposed Rear (North) Elevation is not shown in full detail, with contextual reference to the window directly overlooking the extension roof and the eaves line of the roof. We therefore strongly recommend that contextual elevations are provided to better outline how the proposed increase in parapet height would relate to the main body of a Grade I listed building.
