About Kingsdown


The Kingsdown Conservation Group tries to protect, enhance and stimulate public interest in the Kingsdown area of Bristol. There are over 204 listed buildings in the area and there were a lot more, but in the 1960s, as the Civic Society put it, “The destruction of Bristol’s most important Georgian suburb was perhaps the worst of all the crimes committed in Bristol in the name of progress since the war.”

  • Planning Application for 5G Mast [now REFUSED]

    Planning Application for a 5G Mast Adjacent to Redland Grove Park

    Members may want to comment on a controversial planning application 22/04215/Y, which proposes locating a tall telecoms pole, and various associated cabinets, on the pavement diagonally opposite the Grade II* listed Main Entrance Gates to the separately listed Grade II* Redland Court, on Redland Road.

    The application can be seen on Bristol City Council’s website via the link below.


    Kingsdown Conservation Group objects very strongly to this proposal.

    ADDENDUM 23 October ’22: We are pleased to say that this application has now been REFUSED. It is also encouraging that a very similar application near the tennis courts at Kings Drive, Bishopston was also refused earlier this month
