Improving the quality of life in Canterbury

The Canterbury Society campaigns to enhance the quality of the environment in the city. We aim to preserve and enhance Canterbury’s architecture and urban environment, its green spaces and its transport system, and to combat litter, graffiti and night-time disturbance. We also care deeply about jobs and prosperity, community cohesion and good governance in the city. We provide a focus and a forum for those who love Canterbury, and give people a voice on issues which matter.
