The Salisbury Civic Society is a community-based organisation, made up of a group of volunteers carrying out activities and campaigns that improve the environment and enrich our  quality of life in Salisbury and South Wiltshire.  For members, we host meetings and forums to stimulate debate, providing information through publications and social media. We monitor and comment on local planning applications & development proposals, run a prestigious annual awards scheme for new buildings and conservation projects, and maintain a programme of commissioning historical blue plaques.
