Do you have a suggestion to make on issues in Beecroft and Cheltenham that you wish the Civic Trust to look at?
Published on Saturday, 02 February 2013 01:49
This, Australia's first Civic Trust, established in 1964, was formally incorporated under the NSW Incorporation Act (1984) on 5 December 1988. The Beecroft Cheltenham Civic Trust has achieved much since its foundation, to put the case to Federal, State and Local Governments, as well as to Statutory Authorities, for the survival of what remains of our passive and defenceless natural beauty, and for citizens who wish to continue to enjoy this natural beauty and other desirable civic amenities.
The Trust also aims to preserve the existing village character, heritage values, and the natural beauty of the Beecroft and Cheltenham district. You can find out more about our aims and objectives in our constitution.

THANKS to some 150 Trust members and friends who gave their perspectives via a brief weekend email survey! It helped immeasurably during our meeting with NSW Transport Minister Berejilian and our MP Greg Smith, SC (Attorney-General) this week. The very high percentages of resident support for 'common sense rail transport' are shown below:
Resident Agreement percentages - NWRL must be Compatible with City Rail Network:
97% The proposed North West Rail Line must be fully compatible with the rest of the City Rail network
96% The NWRL tunnels must not be 400mm too small for double-deck trains
96% The line grades must be designed to allow full use by current City Rail network trains
90% City Rail already runs regular trains from Bondi Junction to Kiama, Wynyard to Lithgow, Town Hall to Newcastle. Similar one-train services must be provided to North West Sydney suburbs, which are nearer.
95% No trains between Epping and Chatswood during the months/year of Metro downsizing (for new electrics) is unreasonable.
95% As part of the North West rail line, downsizing the Epping to Chatswood rail line to ONLY run single-deck Metro trains is unreasonable.
95% …Therefore, terminating future North-West trains at Chatswood seems unreasonable & unnecessary.Read more...

The proposed site includes The Module, rear car park, and old Shell service station site, but not the commercial buildings along Beecroft Road near Hannah Street.
The developer’s team presentation indicated three 5 storey buildings, with access spaces connecting Beecroft Road and Hannah Street. Construction will include shops, a new supermarket (twice the current size), commercial offices, plus 140+ unit housing above.
Some 80 Trust members and residents attended and indicated a number of key changes to improve the amenity and presentation of the project. These included:Read more...
