A voice for Shoreham-by-Sea
The Shoreham Society is an independent voice for all who care about the town of Shoreham-by-Sea in West Sussex. Its remit covers planning, conservation, development, the local economy, environmental issues and general local interest.
Formed in 1984, the society is a registered charity. It is strictly non-political and free from commercial interests. It works for the conservation of Shoreham's historic architecture and the enhancement of the town's environment by encouraging an enlightened approach to planning.
It has positively influenced a number of important developments in the town, working with planners, developers and architects to achieve significant improvements to proposals. And through its conservation award scheme it gives public recognition for projects which improve the built environment.
It considers other matters of local interest, including environmental issues and local amenities, and makes appropriate representations when members raise concerns.
Membership is open to all Shoreham residents, and the membership
currently stands at over 500 people of all ages and from all areas of
An executive committee sets the society's policies and activities, which are based on consultation with the members. A town planning sub-committee monitors local planning matters and advises the executive committee.
