The Society keeps track on all Planning applications for our District. We have Committee members, and members, with experience and interests in a broad spectrum of areas including architecture, landscaping, building, construction, development, local council, and conservation.

We make comments and observations on applications on behalf the a Society – our key values and ethos ‘protecting and improving the built and natural environment’ of our district being at the heart of everything we do. But we also comment and make observations, personally, as individuals. We encourage our membership to so, independently and objectively, too.

By signposting and broadcasting local planning matters to local residents and our membership we hope to encourage the community to become involved in their environment and the changes around us – being informed is empowering. People can make a difference.

We organise our own programme of events for Heritage Open Days, as well as those in association with other groups and businesses. The Society likes to foster good links with our local heritage groups, Friends teams, and history societies. If you or your society would like to connect with us – please email, we’d love to hear from you.

For information on Heritage Open Days, please see our page in the Events section.

Are you a Planning nerd too? If you have skills or a keen interest in heritage, protecting and improving our built environment, or would like to get involved in conserving natural aspects of Beeston – to help shape the way we live in our town – please do get in touch. We desperately need more people like you!

Broxtowe Borough Council has a Planning page on their website. Here all application in the area can be searched, shared, and commented on. You can even set to be notified so you don’t miss something in your area, or on your street.
