Welcome to the Newbury Society Website

The Newbury Society exists to promote interest in the history of Newbury and its surrounding parishes, and to act as a civic forum for discussion of matters which may affect  the town’s heritage.

Lochailort withdrew their appeal against the refusal of their original planning applications at the beginning of September and almost immediately submitted a new application, 23/02094/FULMAJ, which is now open for representations to be made to West Berkshire Council.

The Newbury Society is opposed to these revised plans and has launched a new, active e-petition against them, with the aim of gathering as many signatures as possible
