The Society is based in the rural village of Hurst in the Royal County of Berkshire, England. The primary concern of the Society is to protect the physical environment and maintain the rural aspect of the area. It aims also to promote greater use of the village amenities and services and to encourage their expansion.
Housing secretary Michael Gove has urged local authorities to ‘continue adopting ambitious local plans’ ahead of reforms to the system.

HVS Traffic Calming Strategy
One of the main concerns that HVS members raise is speeding in Hurst. A lot of work has been done by the Parish Council to reduce speeding, but the problem persists.
HVS have therefore devised a Traffic Calming Strategy which was presented to HPC at the December Council Meeting. You can view the presentation by clicking here.
In the meantime, if you have any comments or feedback please email us.
