Stroud Civic Society

Stroud Civic Society is for everyone who cares about their surroundings in the Five Stroud Valleys.

Stroud Civic Society is committed to the preservation and protection of our heritage, but also concerned about the quality of new development.

We keep an eye out for planning applications and make representations as necessary. In some cases our views on proposals are formally sought by local authorities.

On contentious issues, the society makes its views known to the relevant planning authorities and through the media. We participate at public inquiries and make representations to the Planning Inspectorate when applications are appealed.

Visits, talks and walks are a key part of our activities – with a programme of visits to historic buildings and modern developments in the spring and summer seasons, a programme of talks throughout the year and a special Christmas event, usually a visit, with a meal, to an unusual house or venue.

The society is on the steering group of Project Stroud, working to improve the town and its surroundings, and to make the most of the opportunities presented by the re-opening of the canal. 

Stroud Civic Society is for everyone who cares about their surroundings in the Five Valleys around Stroud and Nailsworth, both historic Gloucestershire towns. We’re passionate about every aspect of our surroundings.
