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

Established in 1964 & Australia's first - Beecroft-Cheltenham Civic Trust Inc [ABN 41449599554] - marked 50 years of service in 2014. 

The Beecroft-Cheltenham Civic Trust was later 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

Please pledge your support for Byles Creek Valley!

During the weekend prior to the NSW Elections, members of the Byles Creek Vally Union and Trust members worked hard to compile a comprehensive submission to the NSW Government, to augment that prepared by Hornsby Shire Council. 

Your Trust understands that  Council's planners supported subdivision of this bushland corridor, between Pennant Hills Park and Lane Cove National Park, whilst Council environmental staff did not. 

The resident submission has applied planning and environmental expertise and research to resoundingly oppose the subdivision, and calls on our new MP and new NSW Government to acquire the land.  Please click on [Resident Submission] for details

 
Council recently commissioned the expertise of well respected Ecologist, Dr Peter Smith, to assess the investigations and reports to date for the proposed subdivision of nearly 20,000 sq metres of this valley. Dr Smith has concluded much more assessment and reporting is needed to determine the true impacts of this development. His report has also stated the land is most suitable to be purchased to create a reserve as it is the missing link in the wildlife corridor linking Lane Cove National Park and Pennant Hills Park and is ecologically significant due to threatened flora and as it provides habitat and foraging grounds to threatened fauna.
 
We are hoping both Hornsby Council and the NSW State Government can get together and dedicate this land to be protected in perpetuity.
