Brighton Society

FOUNDATIONS: THE BRIGHTON SOCIETY was founded in April 1974 by John Morley, then Director of the Royal Pavilion, and Selma Montford

They had founded the Preston and Old Patcham Society in 1973, but felt that there was a need for a Society to deal with schemes which affected Brighton & Hove as a whole, for issues such as housing, new roads, public transport, traffic, shopping provision, new conservation areas and the character of neighbourhoods. It was to be an amenity society, not just a conservation society.
