Dated July 2018

The 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.
