The Committee publishes regular Planning News updates on the Planning pages of this website. Tap the button below to go there.


We currently have around 120 members, all of whom take an interest in the Civic affairs of our district, by supporting the activities of our various committees (above), participating in meetings and attending civic events.

Many members (and non-members) further enhance their enjoyment of our amazing civic environment by participation as volunteers at The Nothe Fort Museum and The Tudor House Museum.

As one of the  most important and interesting features of our local  built environment, the Fort Museum presents members with the opportunity to get to know and work alongside other like minded enthusiasts.

Many volunteering opportunities are listed on the Nothe Fort website. (Click HERE to go to the Fort Volunteer page).

Vacancies for volunteers are sometimes available at Tudor House - please get in touch if you are interested in finding out more at
