We publish a regular newsletter Visions, e-bulletins for members and a wide range of reports, discussion papers and brochures for everyone. Most of these are also available online. We also have a substantial online presence with four websites, several Twitter feeds and a range of videos. Read on for more details.


‘Visions’ is published in March, July and November of each year. It covers current and developing issues in the areas of planning and development, transport and travel; local community activity and City & County Council affairs.

Each issue includes full details of our popular programme of walks, talks and visits for the coming 3-4 months.

‘Visions’ is available in print and online– see our Newsletters page.

Our YouTube channel has all the videos we have produced, including several recent recordings of the webinars we have been running during the COVID-19 restrictions instead of our usual programme of open talks. They are also listed on the Videos page on this website.
