The Association was formed in 1983, and at the end of 2017 had 156 members. It exists to conserve and enhance the amenities of Lansdown Crescent and the surrounding streets, and to maintain and manage the grazing of the field in front of the Crescent and the area around it.
The Association Committee keep an eye on any planning applications for development in the area, and endeavour to assist members of the Association over any problems they may have with neighbourhood planning applications.
It would be helpful if, when making any planning applications to your property, you could advise the Committee so that they are forewarned.
More than 1000 finials remained missing from the railings of Lansdown Crescent and the Places for seventy years, having been sawn off in World War 2 to aid the war effort. In 2016, the Association coordinated a project to replace them. Robin Kerr (Chairman) | Email
Lansdown Crescent was designed by John Palmer and built between 1789 and 1793. William Beckford lived here for 20 years and built the bridge between Lansdown Crescent and Lansdown Place West. In April 1942 Somerset Place and Lansdown Place East were badly damaged, and All Saints' Chapel destroyed, by bombing.
