placemaking

As an independent organisation, and a charity, collaboration and engagement in our area is very important to us. We are dedicated to protecting and enhancing our district.

We have successfully campaigned for better public spaces and help create Conservation Areas; our planning watchdog keeps tabs on planning applications and local policies – championing good ideas, and challenging bad ones, and liaising with the planning authority on behalf of the Society.

We’re currently fighting to save Oban House from demolition in our campaign #SaveObanHouseNG9. See the Campaign page for details.

We’re always on the look out for new members to our Planning working group – so if you have to spare, we’d love to hear from you.

We also run projects for local green space improvements, tree planting, and wildlife habitat creation.

community

As well as our public meetings, talks, and guided walks, the Society has an annual programme of events including summer and Civic fairs, and Heritage Open Day.

We also platform Beeston Street Art, #alightinBeeston, and Beeston 2020 Vision. As well as support local projects, such as Skate Nottingham (now with a skate park in Beeston), Beeston Film, Greening Beeston, and The Beeston Showcase.

If you are a local community group, club, voluntary organisation and would like to connect or collaborate with us, please get in touch.
