The Berwickshire Civic Society exists to promote interest in and care for the Berwickshire area. The Society encourages the preservation, development and improvement of features of general public amenity or historic interest. Our volunteer architectural and planning advisers are consulted by Scottish Borders Council and other bodies regarding a rising number of planning applications. Founded under the chairmanship of Earl Haig in the early 1970s, the Society was among the first civic societies to be formed and is affiliated to the Scottish Civic Trust. It is one of about one hundred similar local societies around Scotland.
