WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF GOOLE CIVIC SOCIETY

Yorkshire and Humber Regional Civic Society of the Year 2015
Finalist Goole and Howdenshire Business Excellence Awards 2019

Goole Civic Society is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation dedicated to preserving the unique character of the inland port town of Goole in the East Riding of Yorkshire - making it a better place to live, work and relax in.

The port town of Goole was established in 1826 by the Aire and Calder Navigation Company, which built the docks for the export of coal, transported along the canal network by strings of barges known as Tom Puddings. While it is less than 200 years old, the town has a rich architectural and industrial heritage from its Victorian heyday.

The Society welcomes anyone who is interested in sharing our purposes to become a member. Please contact us or come along to one of our meetings at 7.15pm on the last Wednesday of the month at the Lowther Hotel, Aire Street, Goole.

  • The pictures at the top of the page are from Goole Civic Society's 2020 calendar. They were taken by members of the public who entered our photographic competition. Thanks to Marv Osborne, Krishna Mukherji, Rachael Dunn, Lee Cocker, Brian Brady, Anne Howard Webb, David Robinson and Sally Johnston.

Civic Society Helping to shape Goole's Future as member of Town Deal Board

The Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government, on 1 November 2019, launched a prospectus for a £3.6billion Towns Fund, established to address growth constraints and provide the core public investment that builds on a series of government-led growth agreements with local areas, aimed at rebalancing the economy. The fund is designed to propose a range of interventions that drive the renewal of towns to generate long-term economic and productivity growth, with three specific objectives:

  • Urban regeneration, planning and land use: Thriving places for people to live and work through strengthening local economic assets, remediation, preparation and regeneration
  • Skills and enterprise infrastructure: Driving private sector investment and ensuring towns have the space to support skills and small business development
  • Connectivity: Developing local transport schemes that complement regional and national networks, and support the delivery of improved digital connectivity.
