Look after your special places

Places matter to people, and we can all play a role to look after those places that are most special to us.

Although it may seem a daunting task at first, there are tools, resources, grants and organisations out there to help you along the way. There is much to gain by getting involved, from bringing your community together to helping to improve your local environment and even strengthening the local economy.

Responding to planning applications

Helping to keep places as special in the future as they are today is at the very core of what we do. Unfortunately we can't be involved in every local campaign, but we can point you in the direction of further information and practical tools.

We hope that our work will inspire you to take action in your own community and make your special place fit for the future.
