Display of 1No. externally illuminated fascia sign, 1No. internally illuminated hanging sign and 1No. non illuminated wall mounted facility sign.

The tonal values of the existing colour scheme for the external decoration and signage on this prominent corner site clearly advertise the business, whilst respecting the materials employed in the external walls of this fine building. The proposals are understated in the application form and the drawing showing the existing and proposed signage/d├ęcor/illumination is significantly different to the representation in the document : Proposed signage 1. In addition, we suggest that the planning department may wish to consider whether the lamp proposed over the entrance to the premises may present a health and safety risk given the location and use of the premises. OCS suggest that this application be refused.
