5 Saville Row, Lansdown
The overall proposals for these shop fronts are supported subject to the case officers review of the details; painted wooden fascias with traditional gold leaf signwriting is entirely appropriate. We note however the absence of large scale drawings of the hanging sign and we are unsure as to what is proposed regarding lighting of the sign. The current external lights as shown in the photo are ugly and inappropriate for the signage and bracket proposed. We note the ornate hanging frame is to be moved from the location of the V bracket on No.7 down to the second bracket on No.6. Of further concern is whether the building is ‘knocked through’ as is shown in the plans; of course any proposed ‘knocking through’ between listed buildings would be harmful to the special interest and architectural significance of the building.
