About Petersfield Society

Petersfield Society is a charity led by volunteers working for the Petersfield community to conserve and enhance the special character of this historic market town and make it a place more attractive, enjoyable and distinctive to live, work and visit.

We are a member of Civic Voice, the national charity representing hundreds of local civic and amenity societies in communities across England.


We aim to:

  • Provide a voice for the community on local development and environmental issues;
  • Protect and improve the quality of life in Petersfield and the surrounding countryside;
  • Encourage the protection of buildings of architectural or historical interest;
  • Encourage the maintenance and enhancement of the natural environment;
  • Influence future planning and design for the town and surrounding villages;
  • Participate in the development of local and district policies relating to townscape, landscape, traffic and the countryside;
  • Campaign for or against any issues which affect the locality;
  • Support local enhancement projects and foster a sense of community pride.

Community Forum

Wednesday 22 May 2019, 7.00pm for 7.30pm to 9:30pm

Herne Farm Leisure Centre, Crundles, Moggs Mead, GU31 4PJ



Can Petersfield Cope?

Climate change is the most pressing issue of our time. The

Met Office reports that there may be only 12 years before we

reach 1.5°C of warming. How well or poorly prepared are we in

Petersfield and surrounding villages for the widely predicted

extreme weather effects?

This Community Forum will look at how heat and flooding can be mitigated by green infrastructure, and by maximising the contribution of our natural environment.

We will hear from the Environment Agency about the likely impacts on places like ours, about climate change policies from the District Council and National Park Authority, and from green infrastructure experts.

Our speakers are:

Katy Peat, Environment Agency Climate Change Research Group

Jane Devlin, Energy Strategy Manager, East Hampshire District Council

Bruce Collinson, Project Manager, Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company

There will be opportunity for plenty of discussion, a chance to feed back our hopes and to decide individual and group actions.


Please note: Herne Farm Leisure Centre has level access but no accessible toilet.
