Dorking & District Preservation Society

Welcome to the Dorking & District Preservation Society (DDPS) Website.

The Society monitors legislation and evolution of local policies in the fields of development planning via its Strategic Planning Group, countryside planning, conservation and road & air transport. It keeps a week-by-week watch at Pippbrook (Mole Valley District Council offices) on planning applications and expresses views on some to assist in the local authorities decison-making by the way of written submissions. The Society also sponsors projects for school children and organises Heritage Open Days in Dorking. It owns and runs the Dorking Museum in West Street that includes the Local History Group.

If you would like to be associated with, or help us with our aims and activities, either as an individual, company or organisation, we invite you to join the Society.
