The Solent Protection Society is a charitable incorporated organisation intent on safeguarding and preserving the amenities of the Solent environment for the benefit of future generations. The Society was originally set up in 1956 as a joint initiative of CPRE and the RYA in response to proposals to site a nuclear power station on the Isle of Wight and an oil refinery at the mouth of the Hamble river. More than sixty years later, the Solent Protection Society continues to
campaign on important issues of planning, conservation and maritime safety affecting the Solent Region.

We welcome issues and concerns raised by our members and apply the breadth of experience of our Council Members, working with our networks within peer organisations and official bodies to secure resolution.

To understand how membership of the Society might help you, or simply to contact us, please explore the options on the main menu. We also welcome applications from existing members who believe they may have relevant experience to offer and a commitment of time to join the Council in our activities. For further details, please email the Secretary.
