From Ditchling Road to the surrounding Downland—maintaining a sense of continuity…..
The Preston and Patcham Society was founded in 1973. Our work is concerned with maintaining a sense of continuity in the community and matters related to conservation issues.
The Society embraces the area between Ditchling Road, Springfield Road, Dyke Road, Snakey Lane, Patcham village, Withdean, Westdean, Varndean and the surrounding downland.
The Society plants trees from time to time. We check significant planning applications weekly.
We are represented on the Conservation Advisory Group which advises Brighton & Hove City Council’s Planning Committee on matters of conservation and listed buildings.
We hold occasional meetings to which we welcome all members.
