The Marlow Society 

Supporting Marlow's Future 
for the protection, development, and improvement of the town and surrounding areas 



About Us 

We are the Civic Society for our lovely town and the surrounding villages, so we feel we have a duty of care to promote high standards of planning and architecture. 

Marlow Matters 

We seek to advance the protection, development and improvement of Marlow by supporting the River Thames, Transport, Green Spaces and Leisure Facilities, Marlow Bridge, Air Quality & Planning Applications 

River Thames 

Our area includes the stretch of the River Thames from Medmenham to Bourne-End 

Marlow Bridge 

Marlow's Bridge has existed for over 600 years. The metal suspension bridge was completed in 1832 and with the support of The Marlow Society has stood the test of time. 


The Society aims to support improvements to the transport infrastructure while reducing the environmental impact of traffic. 

Air Quality 

The central area of Marlow is an Air Quality Management Area (AQMA).  

Green spaces and leisure facilities 

Our green spaces and leisure facilities add to the enjoyment of living in and visiting Marlow 

Planning Applications 

The Society examines Planning Applications with a potential for significant impact, and, where appropriate, supportive comments or objections are submitted.
