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.”
Our website offers community discussions on many diverse topics. Here is the latest news post:
- October 2018 Committee Meeting
At their regular meeting in October the Group discussed the following:
Removal of setts on Dove Street at rear of 22 Fremantle Square. We will investigate whether this is on public land.
25 Somerset St planning application for new garage. The group commented: a preference for a rubble to a brick wall.
Replacement of dead or dying trees. The group will ask BCC what is available.
The group will investigate putting some hanging signs on our shops in Cotham Road South (as in St Marks Road, Easton).
