Altair, Warminster Road, Bathwick, Bath

Proposed extensions, alterations and re-finishing of property.
Our Response This application is difficult to review in that the drawings do not really give an impression of the building within its context; 3D views of the proposed dwelling, along with a street elevation would help in understanding how the proposed changes impact on the character and appearance of the conservation area and the street scene. The Trust has no objection to the use of contemporary materials but again a better set of colour images would give a more accurate picture of how the different materials relate with each other and to the host building and the local area, in particular the proposed extensive use of black geo brick and timber cladding, neither of which are normally found in the Bath palette.  We would recommend that the applicant is requested, given the scale of the changes proposed and their potential visibility, to provide further detail and contextual drawings as above.
