Grantham Civic Society is part of Civic Voice. Formed over 50 years ago, we are concerned with ensuring the historic market town of Grantham with its fine red brick buildings is enhanced, preserved and adapts to the needs of the residents and businesses in the 21st Century.

Grantham Civic Society has a Planning Committee which looks at planning applications within the town boundary which affect buildings or open spaces of note.

We try to encourage reuse of redundant buildings, sympathetic renovation and good new design. Our Awards Scheme looks at New Build, Shop fronts, Building Renovation and Environmental enhancement and recognises good design and sustainability.

Rivercare is a sub group with its membership dedicated to the practical aspects of cleaning out rubbish from the river, enhancing the landscape for wildlife and people.

Grantham has been identified as a Government Growth Point and its population is set to expand dramatically by 2030. Grantham Civic Society is consulted by South Kesteven District Council and has met with English Heritage on the growth implications to the heritage of the town.

                 

Fantastic news!  We have been awarded £2,000 by InvestSK towards paying for Heritage Lincolnshire Archaeology to dig three test pits on St Peter's Hill. Three areas of buried masonry were picked up on the recent resistivity study and we will now be able to investigate them further. St Peter's Chapel and the Eleanor Cross once stood in this area. 

The archaeological test pit work on St Peter's Hill will take place on Friday 24th May and Saturday 25th May, from 9am-4.30pm. The archaeologists from Heritage Lincolnshire will be supervising the work on three test pits, which will be carried out by Civic Society members and members of the public. If non Civic Society/RUBL members donate £10 to participate, they can have free Civic Society membership for the remainder of 2019. Please contact us via email if you wish help with the dig, which is likely to be very popular.
