  • To alert fellow-citizens, and associations of citizens, who live or work in the area to developments that will affect their lives, and for which they will be expected to pay;

  • To offer citizens a chance to have their say, as well as to play a part in protecting or improving the way they and their neighbours live;

  • To stimulate public interest in and care for the character, history and future of the area, and to maintain and improve the quality of life for all who live or work here;

  • To encourage higher standards of architecture and civic design;

  • To monitor and comment upon planning proposals in order to protect the natural and built environment, and its living community.

Membership is availabe for £3 a year or £13 for five years.
