Merseyside Civic Society


Since 1938 Merseyside Civic Society has helped to preserve key elements of the best of the area’s past, such as the Albert Dock and the Lyceum, as well as demanding design quality for the future. We admire and cherish the buildings and associated spaces that celebrate the area’s past economic and cultural status and continue to contribute to its uniquely rich architectural and urban design heritage. We also believe the city and sub-region have a splendid future and want to contribute to making it all the more splendid. Although Liverpool is at the hub of our activities, we embrace the whole of Merseyside and take a concerned interest in its environmental development and regeneration. As a charitable organisation, we depend upon subscriptions and membership renewals. We encourage those who share our concerns to attend MCS events and to maintain awareness of, and participate in, our activities.

The aims of Merseyside Civic Society can be summarised as follows:
● To stimulate public interest in the enhancement of the quality of life in the city region
● To engage in debate and discussion and conduct research in support of this aim
● To promote high standards of town planning, architecture and design in the area
● To ensure the preservation, conservation, development, improvement and careful stewardship of features of general public amenity
● To seek to safeguard areas and structures of historic and/or public interest
● To strengthen links between bodies, such as the Civic Trust and local civic and amenity societies, and communicate shared interests via the internet
● To hold occasional meetings, lectures and exhibitions
● To publish reports, books and other relevant material on matters of shared concern
● To represent local interests at public inquiries, and to offer constructive comment on proposed schemes and on other occasions when the above issues are debated
