New signage

23/501317/ADV | Advertisement Consent Application for 3 double-sided map totems (non-illuminated) located as shown on Site Location Plan. | Land At Station Road; Land At Market Place; And Land At Partridge Lane / Court Street Faversham Kent

It would make more sense to add to the existing finger posts which are far more in keeping with Faversham’s heritage core.

The designs employ colours that will add visual ‘noise’ to the public realm of the town. Other schemes, such as in London and Bristol, have employed a less intrusive palette of colours. The colours chosen do not obviously speak of Faversham.

There is concern that the proposed panels will attract graffiti.

Important sites are omitted – for example, Faversham’s visitor attractions extend across a wider geographic area eg The Jubilee Centre, St Catherine’s, the Maison Dieu, Davington Priory, The Shrine of St Jude, The Westbrook and Stonebridge Pond and the Urgent Treatment Centre.

The Sea Cadets are no longer meeting in the Town Warehouse (a change of name away from TS Hazard is imminent). Directional signage should not point to occupiers, tenants, etc as these are subject to changes of name. The Town Council’s suggestions for amendments to what is on the signs should all be implemented. However, this could just as easily be achieved by adding to existing finger posts
