Dorchester Civic Society

Celebrating over 40 years of caring about Dorchester

We are independent and non-political and provide a forum to share ideas and opinions with other people who, like you, care for Dorchester’s special character and its future

About the Society

We are independent and non-political and aim to involve people of all ages and backgrounds.

We exist to stimulate people’s interest in the town by encouraging high standards of architecture, urban design and planning. We work to preserve and enhance buildings and areas of historic interest and the town’s landscape setting.
