Car Club – Kingsdown Car Club is managed by Smart Moves as part of the Bristol City Car club. Membership gives you use of the car (a Vauxhall Corsa), which is parked on its designated parking space in Clevedon Terrace (no parking problems!). Booking is by internet or phone. Full details, prices etc here or phone Iris Eiting on 0845 458 1785

For Kingsdown dwellers it makes an ideal alternative to car ownership (usually estimated at £3000 a year or more), or indeed to owning a second car. You can book for as little as an hour, on the spur of the moment (provided the car is available). You don’t have to go far to fetch it and take it back. If it is already booked, there are other cars in Fernbank Road, Cotham Road and St Andrews (including an estate car). And you don’t have to worry about parking when you return.It just takes a little bit of extra planning and removes the temptation to use cars indiscriminately!

  1. Hey Guys,

    I was just wondering what your thoughts on loud music are?

    As you know, there are a lot of students around the Kingsdown area, 6 of which live next door to me.

    They occasionally play really LOUD music and the bass makes my flat vibrate! I have been round on several occasions to politely ask them to turn the music down, but the noise creeps back up over time.

    I have lived here for nearly 6 years now and it is actually wanting me to move properties.

    What do you think are my best options, other than moving obviously.

    Thanks
    Jenny
