You are here: Why Join

Join the SPS and stand up for Suffolk


  • Current government policy favours development which can threaten our landscape and heritage
  • Local authorities often look to SPS for objective advice in the face of cutbacks in their planning departments
  • We have many more requests for help than we can handle
  • If you support us we can do more

We are an independent and respected organisation which is not afraid to oppose. We can make a real difference to shape the Suffolk of the future. BUT we need your help

Communities and developers are not evenly matched. Developers have deeper pockets and can appeal against planning refusal. Communities are limited to judicial review, which is costly and available only in exceptional cases.

Please help our efforts go further:

You can join SPS for only £30. As a member you'll receive our regular Suffolk View magazine, and enjoy our member visits and lectures throughout the year.

Alternatively, join SPS and also support the CPRE's campaigning work for £3.00/month.

Best of all, top up your membership subscription with a monthly or one-off donation. Membership covers less than 20% of our costs. We rely on donations for the rest.
