Protecting Rye’s historic heritage
for future generations
Rye Conservation Society exists to safeguard our historic town and to preserve its
special and distinctive character. Living or working in a Conservation Area of national
significance places responsibility on all of us -
Our Planning Committee meets every two weeks to review local planning applications and provide feedback on these to Rother District Council and to local councillors. Follow local issues we are involved with and alert us to others by adding your comments on our new Blog.
Medieval buildings mix with Georgian houses, Victorian buildings, Dutch gabled properties and historic churches. The blend of architectural styles is what makes Rye a unique place. See Gallery for examples and information about the different shapes and materials of Rye.
The Society looks for examples of good conservation and good modern design in the town and recognises them by giving those responsible a Townscape Award.
Your feedback is welcome. Let us have your comments about conservation issues on our Blog.If you have any suggestions for the site, or you notice any corrections which need to be made, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
