"Protecting and Improving Our City"


Plymouth Civic Society's primary purpose is to participate, influence and shape where possible the urban design and functionality of Plymouth with regard to the built environment in terms of planning, architecture, heritage, open spaces, infrastructure and connectivity.

Our areas of interest include the Joint Local Plan, Area Action Plans and Local Development Framework; heritage conservation and history promotion; environmental issues (such as nuclear submarine dismantling, tree strategy); and connectivity and transportation infrastructure issues (such as Plymouth airport, pedestrian/cycle ways, car parking and road signage, public transport, road and rail access, cruise liner terminal).

Networking is an important part of Plymouth Civic Society's dynamic. Our aim is to be an organisation of significant influence.

Recent activities include participation in consultations, workshops, meetings and communications with business organisations, the council, developers and urban and architectural planning organisations. A list of these activities can be seen in the 'About Us' section.
