Harborough Local Plan 2011-2031, Proposed Submission

RT3 clause 1

Representation ID: 7602

Received: 17/11/2017

Respondent: INDIGO PLANNING

Legally compliant? No

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

Policy RT3 requires new shopfronts to relate well in scale, proportion, material and
decorative treatment to the façade of the building. In Conservation Areas changes will only be permitted where they contribute to the conservation and enhancement of the area's character or appearance.

The justification for the policy also notes that normally illuminated signage will not be permitted in Conservation Areas. There is no evidence to support the proposed objection to illuminated signage in conservation areas. Applications should be assessed in terms of their impacts and only where they will cause 'substantial harm' should development be restricted.

There is no evidence to support the proposed objection to illuminated signage in conservation areas. Applications should be assessed in terms of their impacts and only where they will cause 'substantial harm' should development be restricted.
The policy should therefore be re-worded to reflect national planning policy, such that advertisements are only controlled in the interests of public safety and amenity or where they would individually or cumulatively result in 'substantial harm' to a heritage asset.
