Welcome to the website for the Aldeburgh Society.
The Society is working with Aldeburgh Town Council and local residents to fight a contentious housing development in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) adjacent to the River Alde which would be visible from the river. READ OUR PRESS RELEASE HERE
This proposed development by MS Oakes Ltd for 43 homes in a site bordering the former Reades Brickworks could set a dangerous precedent for other potential building sites in and around the coastal town. The area has acknowledged environmental sensitivities; in addition to being located within an AONB.
Aldeburgh Town Council, the Aldeburgh Society and a group of residents have pledged funds to fight this development off Saxmundham Road at a Public Inquiry scheduled to begin at the Community Centre in Aldeburgh on 11 September 2018, lasting for six days. WE NEED TO RAISE £15000
