Sadly Sean Duggan decided to step down from the committee at the AGM. We are delighted that he wishes to continue to work with Civic Society members Katrina Parker and Dr Margaret Simons to update the St Mary’s / Castle Street Conservation Area Appraisal as part of the Conservation Area Advisory Committee’s (CAAC) activities.

We do need more committee members please, e.g. Secretary and people interested in Planning and events. Please do let the Chair know if you might be interested in joining the committee or indeed helping with our work in other ways. The Main committee meets approximately every 3 months. A Planning Sub-Committee has started to meet and reacts to planning applications and we meet with developers for Pre-Application discussions about their ideas and designs. Much of the business is done by email. If you would like to assist in any way please contact the Chairman ( 0118 9598350), email;
