This, Australia's first Civic Trust, established in 1964, is marking 50 years of service in 2014.
The Beecroft-Cheltenham Civic Trust was formally incorporated under the NSW Incorporation Act (1984) on 5 December 1988. The 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.

Recent media articles have shown the bus journey could take 58 minutes (Epping to Chatswood at 8am) compared with around 17 minutes by train.
When Minister Berejiklian was questioned by the Trust regarding the 14,000 commuters per day inconvenienced by the rail line closure, she said: “get used to it”.

The Beecroft Cheltenham Civic Trust has been active for 50 years in protecting the heritage, environment and character of Beecroft and Cheltenham. We were horrified to hear that the NSW Government passed this law on 1st August without any announcement or community consultation.
