Welcome to the Repton Village Society.
The forerunner of this Society was established in 1989 as the Repton Village Preservation Group to campaign against proposals for large-scale housing schemes.
It evolved into the present form in 1991, when it was registered with the Civic Trust (www.civictrust.org.uk) as the local civic amenity society, and also became a registered charity. It is a member of the East Midlands Amenity Societies Association.
The society is established:
|To promote high standards of planning and architecture in or affecting the area of benefit.
|To educate the public in the geography, history, natural history and architecture of the areas of benefit.
|To secure the preservation protection development and improvement of features of historic or public interest in the area of benefit.
The R.V.S. is recognised by the local authority planning department for the purpose of non-statutory consultation on planning matters and co-operates with the Repton Parish Council in village improvement schemes and ‘best kept’ village competitions.
