Civic Day lunchtime walk 16 June

To celebrate 50 years of conservation areas…..

As part of this year’s Civic Day celebrations we would like to invite anyone interested to come to a guided walk around Lower Lansdown and Camden on Friday the 16th June.  The walking tour led by Building Historian Kay Ross and Conservation Officer Joanna Robinson will describe how this part of the city wide conservation area has developed over time and identify and invite discussion about the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats within this area.  Feedback will be used to help inform the developing conservation area character assessment for the conservation area. More information on the character assessment project is available here:
