|The current school sign|
|The proposed new sign|
|A comparison of the two signs from Bridge Road|
As the architect's drawing shows the sign against the full height of the Michaela building it is not easy to gauge the impact of the change at human eye level so I have reproduced them below for comparison. It is almost as if the application seeks to minimise the true scale.
As far as I can see the planning application does not give the dimensions of the present sign. The replacement sign is 3.6 metres x 2 metres ( approx 12 ft by 6-1/2ft) - much larger than any school sign I know and in my view more suitable for a commercial premises.
Readers can comment on the application18/2675 before August 21st. The application seeks permission until July 2032.
