Draft North Somerset Council Shopfront Design Guide - July 2019 Shopfront Design Shopfront Design

Hello Cara Nice to see you this morning and the Guide looks really good, well done. I know it it probably more than just a draft now but wondered if it might be possible to include a further drawing, similar to the one you have on page 11 but with two doors ? ( access to residential above ) I suppose depending on the scale of the property the two doors could either be located adjacent to each other or one at either end just a thought All the best Mike

My comment relates to external finishes. As a planning department, you can specify whatever you want - natural stone, bathstone, roughcast render, stucco, K-Rend etc. The issue is not the finish but the workmanship. In North Somerset there are 'average' looking finishes that are completed to a high level of workmanship whereas there are good quality finishes (such as bathstone quoins for example) that are built to a poor level of workmanship. So....what is the point of being specific about propo

I am totally in favour of bringing wsm shop fronts to a high standard. There is rubbish shop fronts. Posters in windows Looks cheap and wsm looks down . .in ireland shop fronts are at a high standard. Malahide . Greystones. Co wicklow. Weston must improve . Drab. A run down dump of a town . Cheap chip shop fronts on the front. Must be made better. The front since been done looks good. The town must be made to a high standard.

I agree in general with the design guide and feel that any shopfront design must reflect the best of the period when the building was constructed. i.e, a Victorian building should have a "Victorian" shop front but a modernist/art deco building should have a modernist/art deco shop front. I would like to see any new external lighting prohibited now in view of the risk of "light spillage" and increased use of electricity. In this "climate emergency" neither should be permitted.
