Montpelier Conservation Group

Montpelier Conservation Group is concerned primarily with issues relating to the built environment of Montpelier and its neighbouring areas.

What do we do?

Much of our time is taken with considering planning applications for buildings and attending related meetings. But we have also worked on bringing Montpelier Park to life, on improving road layouts and street furniture, and setting up the MontpelierPages online directory.

Current major planning applications at October 2017

Land to the rear of 28-36 Picton Street: application for demolition of warehousing and construction of 9 flats and 6 business units, reference 17/04471/F and 17/04472/LA (both now withdrawn).
