  • To be responsive to the social and economic regeneration of the Borough;

  • To conserve traditional and historic shopfronts and commercial premises;

  • To prevent unsympathetic alterations to existing shopfronts;

  • To provide detailed information for proposals to be submitted for schemes of amendments and new shopfronts.
