The Russell Protection Society
Promoting Wise and Sustainable Development
Russell is one of New Zealand’s unspoiled gems, it has a unique and unparalleled charm with its mix of history and natural beauty.
The Russell Protection Society was formed in 1986 by a group of enlightened ratepayers with the specific purpose of promoting wise and sustainable development that compliments the historic and special character of Russell and its surrounds.
While development pressures are ever increasing, The Russell Protection Society’s mission remains unchanged. We strive to protect the intrinsic values that attract people to live, work, visit and holiday in Russell.
