External painting to existing shop front (windows frames and fascia board) and replacement hanging signs, Internal alterations to facilitate proposed cafe and artists studios.

Comments: The Civic Trust Objects to the proposal.  The Civic Trust have no objection in principle to this proposal for a café and artists’ studios but are concerned about the fire risk to wooden structures from the proposal for ceramics being fired in a kiln in the undercroft. We consider that a condition be imposed preventing the firing of pottery on the premises and any heat using activities that could threaten the historic structure of the building
