Queen's Crescent Garden


Application Approved!

We are delighted to pass on the news that Exeter St James Community Trust's planning application for the completion of Queen's Crescent Garden boundary restoration, with its new entrance and associated infrastructure, has been approved!

Steve is the master builder who constructed the new entrance on Queen's Crescent and rebuilt the demolished Longbrook Street corner wall. It is anticipated that the work will take place in November / December.
