Local Planning
The Society monitors planning applications in the area, and makes observations and offers opinions to the local authorities. It endeavours to raise public awareness of developments which may involve threats to the enjoyment of local places and structures of historic or architectural interest.

Local Business and Developments
The Society recognises that the development of the local economy and  improving the overall prosperity of the area are key to the achievement of their primary objectives. Compromises sometimes have to be made, and to ensure that these are always carefully considered, the Society is endeavouring to develop close links with the local authorities and the local business community.
