SPRA History

In 1969, a few residents got together to form the Sneyd Park Residents’ Association in order to defend the area from piecemeal and inappropriate development. Since then successive elected committees have kept vigil over all planning applications – for demolitions, extensions, conversions and new-builds as well as for the removal or severe scale-reduction of trees – themselves such a defining feature of this beautiful suburb. It was as a result of a great deal of hard work by the association, over thirty years ago, that Sneyd Park was granted conservation area status in 1981. We still rely heavily on this special status in combating unsuitable development.
