Tenby Civic Society aims to make Tenby a better place to live, work, shop and visit by promoting high standards of planning and architecture whilst preserving and protecting historical features yet allowing sustainable and thoughtful development of existing and new features ultimately resulting in prosperity, wellbeing and civic pride.
The Society discusses and makes active and direct contributions to Pembrokeshire County Council on all new planning applications in Tenby.
Other business covers the design and installation of new Blue Plaques, highlighting new dilapidations, such as Scotsborough House, to PCC and ongoing fund raising and grant applications to fund new projects undertaken and managed by the Society such as the Tenby Characterisation Study which began in March 2017.
Allen’s View is a hill top garden alongside the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path at the top of Northcliffe. It was gifted by Jessie Allen, the landowner, in 1965 to the Friends of Tenby (now Tenby Civic Society) and represents a significant ongoing project both in terms of responsibility as a Trustee and a major use of funds. The views are breath-taking but managing the planting and overall landscaping when vehicle access is limited can be time consuming for volunteers and expensive when specialist help is needed. Have a look at the Allen’s View BLOG to see what has been happening recently.
The Society also provides welcome advice, information and support to other local bodies such as St Catherine’s Island Trust and the Brynhir Action Group as well as attending to the usual Committee business.
