Alnwick Civic Society was formed to preserve & enhance the built environment of our ancient market town.
The society has been involved in a number of successful high profile campaigns. It continues to pursue its objectives by providing a voice for members; through dialogue with planning and conservation professionals, and likeminded organisations; by offering advice, scrutinising & commenting on development proposals; and by recognising excellence, organising public meetings, developing guided trails, and a variety of other activities.
In response to recent changes to the planning system the society is heavily involved in development of the Alnwick and Denwick Neighbourhood Plan, and works with local partners to influence policy at a county level. It seeks to influence national policy in co operation with other bodies within the civic movement, and was a founding member of Civic Voice.
All who share our aims can support the work of the society: by joining as an individual, family or corporate member; by participating in activities, sharing ideas, raising areas of concern and pointing out examples of good practice. Or simply by demonstrating pride in our town, and spreading the word about the value of our work.
