It sets out what is required in terms of permissions and statutory consents. It promotes a greater understanding of the existing heritage value and architectural detail of existing shopfronts in North Somerset and will ensure delivery of a high standard of design and workmanship which will benefit traders, shoppers and improve the local environment.
