Purpose of FoB

Formed in 1956 the Society exists to protect, improve and develop the character and amenities of Brockenhurst and the surrounding forest area for the benefit of  the residents of the village and the wider community.

It concentrates especially, but not exclusively, on matters related to planning, environment and the welfare of the community.

It will seek to influence local and other governmental bodies to advance its objectives.

In particular the Society will carry out regular and detailed reviews of all regional, structure and local plans, together with local planning applications. Representations will be made as appropriate.

The Society also aims to bring speakers on matters of interest to the Village to its Spring (April/May and AGM (November) meetings.
