The Barnet Society

The Barnet Society is a non-political organisation that campaigns for the preservation and improvement of the environment of Chipping Barnet and surrounding areas and for protection of the Green Belt.

Founded in 1945 by Trevor Jukes and Gwyneth Cowing, the Society was established to give a voice to local people who believed that the Green Belt needed defending.

We continue with that cause today but also campaign on many other local issues.  Please refer to our News page for details of current campaigns and other items.

The Barnet Society works to ensure that we get the best for our town and its environs and that any change enhances and improves the area for all who live, work and study here.

As well as lobbying, holding meetings and

 

taking our elected representatives and their officers to task, we are active in a number of local organisations, including the Chipping Barnet Town Team, Friends of Barnet Market, High Barnet Project, Barnet Museum and the Monken Hadley and Wood Street Conservation Area Advisory Committees.

We are also members of the Federation of Residents Associations of Barnet (FORAB), the London Green Belt Council and London Forum of Amenity and Civic Societies.

We represent the areas covered by Chipping (or High) Barnet, Hadley, New Barnet, Arkley, Underhill and the Dollis Valley.

We are always looking for new members, so if you live locally, are concerned about your surroundings and want to know what is happening in the area, then join us, and make The Barnet Society even more effective.
