Civic Society Website

The Civic Society is a non-political, voluntary organisation dedicated to shaping the future of Ashby de la Zouch and preserving its proud heritage.


We have successfully prevented unwanted changes to Market Street and housing development on Bath Grounds. Retained the Open Air swimming baths, reduced the number of hot food takeaways and improved parking.  We are also campaigning against the large inappropriate housing developments in Ashby.  We also have delegates in all the ‘District Plan’ forums.

Developing Bath Grounds and again fighting the latest threat to build houses on this vital green space.
