32 Marston Street Oxford OX4 1JU

  Display of 1no. externally illuminated fascia sign, 1no. externally illuminated hanging sign, 3no. externally illuminated signs, and 2no. non-illuminated signs. 

The Civic Society is concerned about the standard of proposed new signage, which appears increasingly brash and garish. New signage is often larger and bolder. This application is a case in point.

Marston St is a quiet haven of mainly Victorian terraced houses, between the vibrancy of Cowley Road and the University and Iffley Road.

We are pleased that the pub is being refurbished and not closed but we feel that the signage should be more appropriate to the character of this residential street. We presume ‘Pizza pots Pints’ is the restaurant chain’s trademark but surely there do not need to be 3 signs saying this.
