Local interest groups

In Greenwich there are a number of local amenity societies and other interest groups which take a keen interest in the protection, management and conservation of the World Heritage Site. We welcome the views of these organisations.

Local interest groups include:

The Greenwich Society works to make Greenwich a better place for all who live, work and study here and aims to protect the town's heritage and give voice to the concerns of local residents to improve its amenities.

The Greenwich Conservation Group is made up of representatives of local amenity groups operating across much of the Royal Borough and it meets on a regular basis to comment on planning applications likely to have an adverse impact on the character and appearance of the many conservation areas in the borough, including the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site. 

The Greenwich Historical Society exists to stimulate research and interest in the history of Greenwich and its immediate neighbourhood. The Society runs a programme of illustrated during the spring and winter months and occasionally arranges guided walks during the summer.

Friends of Greenwich Park supports and promotes all the amenities of the Royal Park and is concerned with its management and future.

The Westcombe Society aims to forge links within the community to make the area a better place for all who live and work here.Its main focus is to – protect and improve services and amenities which impact on the local area and foster relationships amongst residents, councils, businesses, local societies and others who can influence the well being of the community.

The Blackheath Society acts as the public voice of Blackheath, speaking to the press, and working with local councils, residents, other amenity groups, traders, the police, the Boundary Commission, English Heritage and the Blackheath Joint Working Party for the well-being of the area and for its continued enjoyment by future generations.
