The Ringwood Society was formed fifty years ago to protect Ringwood’s unique character. We believe that good quality design which reflects the nature of Ringwood can enhance the old historic buildings and provide a twenty-first century town of which we can all be proud.
We work with New Forest District Council, Ringwood Town Council and others. We campaign on amenity and infrastructure proposals and assist in identifying areas of Local Distinctiveness.
How we work
We hold an Annual General Meeting in the spring, a second meeting of broad interest, usually with a guest speaker, and a social event such as a town walk every year. We send our members a newsletter twice a year. Our elected committee meets every month to monitor planning applications and to discuss local development issues.
We are determined to prevent Ringwood from becoming just another dormitory town.
