It states: “The proposal not only addresses the practical aspects of door replacement but also incorporates considerations for heritage preservation.

“The existing doors have been assessed and are deemed irreparable, necessitating their replacement.

“After conducting a thorough survey, it has been determined that the current doors are structurally compromised and no longer meet the required standards for functionality, security, and energy efficiency. The proposed replacement doors aim to address these deficiencies while maintaining the historical character of the museum.

“The new entrance doors are meticulously designed to replicate the existing doors in a like-for-like manner, ensuring compatibility with the historical context of Thirsk Museum.

“Recognizing the heritage value of the museum, we have engaged architectural experts with experience in heritage preservation to ensure that the replacement doors seamlessly integrate with the original design.

“To enhance the historical authenticity, the proposed doors will be crafted using traditional timber materials and techniques, consistent with the era when the museum was constructed.

“The discreet insulated panels and double-glazed safety glass will be subtly incorporated to meet contemporary standards without compromising the museum’s heritage charm.
