Leicester Civic Society

Leicester Civic Society

We campaign for higher standards of planning, architecture and regeneration in Leicester as well as the preservation, restoration and re-use of historic buildings.

We believe quality regeneration and imaginative modern architecture can co-exist alongside the older fabric of the city. However, this is rarely accomplished in Leicester due to poor planning, short-termism by developers and ignorance of the historical and cultural value of older buildings.

We welcome new supporters, whether you just want to make your voice heard on a particular campaign or join us to increase our influence across the city.
