The Penarth Civic Society focuses on the heritage, people and future development of Penarth

Welcome to the Penarth Society website. We are an independent, non-political, voluntary organization, constituted as a Charitable Incorporated Organization. The Society campaigns for the protection and enhancement of our beautiful town, with its important heritage and cultural life.

Our objectives are:

- Seek to develop and improve our town, as well as to protect and protect it.

- Encourage high standards of design and architecture

- Support the participation of the whole community in its governance


The Association was formed in 1988 as a reaction to the planned redevelopment of the saltwater swimming baths on the boulevard. A number of very important buildings had already been lost in the town as developers had been demolished to make way for flats, there was a successful campaign to list the building and you can read about this and other campaigns we ran in the Campaigns of the Past section in our News Category.

Our Groups
