The Society monitors local planning applications and tries to comment on all applications of significance. This is because we believe our built environment has a huge role to play in how our community develops – whether we have open spaces free for community use, whether there are enough schools in the area, and whether our market traders can continue to operate and grow their businesses – those are just some of the issues we have fought on in the past few years.

If you’re concerned about a planning application being made in the area, please get in touch with us.
