Client – Rhonnda Cynon Taf County Borough Council
Location – Ferndale, Rhondda
This study looked at the commercial frontages in the Dyffryn Street in Ferndale, suggesting improvements to enliven the frontage.
As with most town and village centres, a number of the shop fronts had evolved over the years to a position where signage was inappropriate in size and design, security grilles overbearing and unsympathetic alterations had been made.
The proposals suggest which frontages could be improved taking into consideration impact and cost. In some instances the alterations proposed were minimal, or involved a better choice of colour, in other instances new fronts were suggested.
