New role for civic society?

Have your say

A TOWN’s civic watchdog could be revived if there is sufficient interest.

Epworth Civic Society, which was set up for the good of the town and holds a watching brief to monitor planning applications and make comments to the planning authority, has been dormant for the past couple of years.

It has been kept ticking over by three residents as they did not want to see it disbanded and they have got together to see if there are sufficient people willing to revive it.

A spokesman said: “The society has its own individual funds and, although dormant at present, can be resurrected to spearhead any campaigns that are pertinent to its mandate.”

Anyone wanting to find out more about the society is asked to telephone Bob Brand on 01427 872918.
