We want the best for Huddersfield while protecting and celebrating its heritage

Welcome

Huddersfield Civic Society has a great pride in the town and we do all we can to promote it as a great place to live, work and play.

We liaise closely with Kirklees Council on any major developments, comment on planning applications and are not afraid to be critical or highlight problems when we feel it’s needed.

We care passionately about this town and its people and will do all we can to protect its buildings, culture and heritage while realising that life moves on and things change.

Huddersfield people look back and regret town planning decisions in the past. We are here to scrutinise every proposal to ensure that any changes must now enhance what we already have.

So, if you care as much as we do why not join us as a member.
