2 Bournemouth Civic Society Celebrating 40 years of positive action How we started In the early 1970s proposals were made to create a vast development on the West Cliff and at Pier Approach for a conference centre, hotels, casino and residential flats. The scheme would have seen a huge number of Victorian and Edwardian buildings demolished, open space built upon, roads closed or diverted and the character and appearance of the cliffs and seaside changed irrevocably Many of Bournemouth’s residents associations, community groups, business and political leaders of all parties and the local Fabians came together to oppose the plans under the banner of “The Save Bournemouth Campaign”. The “Save Bournemouth Campaign” was a non-political and effective champion of good planning, better architecture and the conservation of historic and natural features that made Bournemouth special. Having successfully fought off the first scheme on the West Cliff it was decided to formalise the “Save Bournemouth Campaign” objectives and so Bournemouth Civic Society was created in November Bournemouth Civic Society is a town wide amenity group that was, and remains today, a registered charity and registered with the Civic Trust (now renamed Civic Voice)
