We bring people together to protect their towns and countryside.


The society was formed as a networking organisation for civic societies in Kent at a time when many of our towns and villages were under threat from the prevailing attitude to demolish historic buildings in Conservation Areas to make way for new modern buildings, often of inferior or unsuitable design.

What issues will be on our agenda over the next 12 months?
- The M20 lorry park near Junction 11,
- The Government’s plans for increased runway capacity in the South East,
- Proposal for “a garden town” at Otterpool in Shepway District,
- Housing targets and Local Plans across Kent and Medway,
- and much more!
