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 support residents' petition for NSW Government to acquire rare local bushland...

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

Please support our residents’ on-line petition for the NSW Government to acquire this rare bushland corridor - Click Here.

“..., thank you for the offer to provide a short video.  I feel that I cannot communicate effectively what I want to say in a video and more importantly I am very strapped for time.  My preference is to see you all in person at the March 2 forum.[Epping Club, 6.30pm]   Please encourage your members to attend.”
