Why is it necessary to have guidance for rooftops?
The treatment of the roof shape and finish of the top of a building is an important factor in determining how it will contribute to the character and townscape of an area.
Architectural details are all important aspects of a building’s design, such as the treatment of:
- the eaves line
- roof planes
- roofline silhouette
Why is the town's roofscape significant?
The town’s roofscape and skyline is highly significant in St Helier because there are a large number of important public vantage points providing views across the topographical ‘bowl’ in which the town sits as well as long public views into the town along main transport corridors.
