Cardiff Civic Society Mission Statement

Posted by on Jun 17, 2020 in CCS Campaigns, News | No Comments

Cardiff Civic Society campaigns for the protection of our fantastic urban green spaces and our built heritage, as well as fighting against inappropriate development.

In recent years we have fought more than 35 campaigns.

The Society lobbies the council and Welsh Government on issues such as better, cleaner public transport,  improved air quality, protection of  our mature green infrastructure, reduced mowing and banning of glyphosate to protect nature and human health.

We have set up a Green Advisory Group to help create a more nature friendly Cardiff, and have planted wildlife hedging and launched Cardiff Meadows Project to help pollinators.

We also run a successful tree planting project, Canopy Cardiff/Canopi Caerdydd to increase the city’s canopy.

We are always happy to help communities faced with the might of developers.

We don’t always succeed, but in the immortal words of the late Bob Crow:

“If you fight, you won’t always win, but if you don’t fight, you will always lose”…
