The Bedford Park Society aims to protect the amenities of the conservation area, the buildings and their setting, and to ensure any development is in keeping with the original character of the garden suburb.
Founded in 1963 the Society’s first breakthrough occurred in 1967 when the Grade II listing of 356 buildings was recommended. The conservation areas were declared by the boroughs of Ealing (1969) and Hounslow (1970), who administer the two halves of Bedford Park. These areas have since been expanded to take in more non-listed houses.
Our intention is to assist sensitive analysis and decision making, not to prescribe a single solution. There is often a case for more than one design detail to be appropriate in particular circumstances. The Society works to encourage the sympathetic design of alterations and additions, and to encourage owners to consider the importance of boundary fences, mature trees and open spaces in keeping the character of the street scene.
The Planning committee’s help is freely available to members who live within the conservation area and you are encouraged to contact the Society prior to making planning applications. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
