Welcome to the Beecroft-Cheltenham Civic Trust website...

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.  For urgent phone contact, the Trust Secretary may be reached on 040 875 1915.
