About Urban Gravesham
Who are we?
Urban Gravesham - the Civic Society for Gravesend and Northfleet is a group of citizens concerned and interested in the character and environment of the urban areas of Gravesham. We are members of the Civic Voice (www.civicvoice.org.uk).
What do we do?
We take an interest in all new development and aim to engage the Council, developers and other interested parties in debate about the future of Gravesend and Northfleet. We aim to support positive changes to the town centre but we will, where necessary, campaign against changes that would damage the character of the area. Urban Gravesham has been very concerned about very large scale proposals on Gravesend's historic riverside which will affect all of the town centre of Gravesend.
How can you get involved?
If you share our concerns we would be very pleased to hear from you. To be a strong group which everyone listens to we need as many members as possible. We need some funds for postage and other matters. We also need people who are prepared to help produce information, deliver leaflets etc. We would be delighted if you just want to become a member or if you wish to be involved in a more active way.
Membership is £5 per year. We try to keep this fee to a minimum. In return we will keep you informed of major building developments in Gravesend and you will have an opportunity to debate what is proposed for Gravesend via our meetings. We will represent your views to the Council and other major organisations and will, on your behalf, argue for positive change in the urban areas of Gravesend. In particular we will seek to ensure that the historic character of Gravesend is preserved and enhanced.
