The St John's Wood Society Aims
The Society has been instrumental in the listing of buildings of historic and architectural merit and in the creation of the St John's Wood Conservation areas. It is a recognised body for consultation under the Civic Amenities Act 1967. Local planning applications are referred by the relevant planning authorities to the Society, whose views are respected and often lead to modification of the applications. The Society has given evidence at numerous public enquiries and is constantly involved in problems affecting trees and traffic. Read More...
