Montpelier in Bristol, England, reflects architectural styles over time. Montpelier Conservation Group strives for this to continue with good design of 21st Century buildings alongside sympathetic refurbishments of existing ones.

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.
