External alterations for the conservation of the street sign St James’s Parade.
Our Response

31 St James Parade forms part of a Grade II Georgian terrace situated within the core of the Bath conservation area and World Heritage site. It forms the end of the terrace between St James Parade and Wine Street, and a 1993 photograph evidences that the incised street sign was previously painted.

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.
