The Trust strives to conserve and maintain the unique architecture and planning of the Suburb which makes it an outstanding Conservation Area. Trust Members should include all residents who believe that this conservation is worthwhile.
Benefits of Full Membership:
The requirement for Full Membership is that you are an adult who has lived on the Suburb for 3 years or longer. There are no restrictions regarding the number of Members per household but each person should fill in a separate form. Residents who have lived on the Suburb for less than 3 years can become Associate Members.
The Trust differs from most companies in that while fulfilling its objective to conserve and maintain the character and amenities of the Suburb it produces no profits or dividends. The Trust does not have shareholders but Members; who have no financial commitment and a limited liquidation liability of £1.
The eight Trustees who are the company directors (known as the Trust Council) are volunteers. Four of the Trustees are appointed by outside organisations (Law Society, Royal Institute of British Architects, Royal Town Planning Institute and Victorian Society); the other four Trustees are residents elected by Trust Members.
