The Hammersmith Society was founded in 1962 and in 2012 celebrated its 50th year of working for a better urban environment in Hammersmith.
The Hammersmith Society seeks to preserve and enhance architecture and the urban environment in Hammersmith by promoting public interest in an improved townscape, by campaigning and by working with the public and local and national authorities. Our membership includes both individuals and local groups concerned about the built and natural environment in Hammersmith.
Our main areas of activity are:
- The Environment
- Community participation and consultation
- Open Spaces
- Employment opportunities
And many more.
We are actively interested on behalf of all Hammersmith residents and workers in such matters as proposals for new development schemes, the preservation of beautiful buildings and their surroundings, parks and trees, the use of open spaces, our stretch of the Thames, the problems of road traffic and parking, noise and pollution, etc… We want to make Hammersmith a safer, more convenient and better place in which to live, work and enjoy ourselves; and to influence the Local Authority, the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, to accept greater and genuine public participation.
The Hammersmith Society is a member of the London Forum of Civic and Amenity Societies and a founder member of the West London River Group. We work closely with the Hammersmith & Fulham Historic Buildings Group.
