Hereford Civic Society is an independent local charity representing people who care about the City - we are the City's built environment forum who:-
Encourage high standards of architecture and town planning in Hereford
Stimulate public interest in, and care for the beauty, history and character of the area of the city and its surrounding
Encourage the preservation, development and improvement of features of general public amenity or historic interest
HCS pursues these ends by means of meetings, exhibitions, lectures, a quarterly magazine and promotion of schemes of benefit to the Hereford community.
The Society is concerned about all aspects of the built environment and the civil society which lives here; and liaises with Hereford City Council and Herefordshire Council on relevant matters.
HCS reviews all planning applications within the City. HCS has a non-voting place on the City Council Planning Committee and we also submit our own comments via the excellent Herefordshire Council website.
