Our Raison d’Être
Chester Civic Trust exists for the public benefit within the City of Chester.
Our aims are: To stimulate public interest, to promote high standards
of planning and architecture and to secure the preservation, protection, development and improvement of features of historic or public interest.
We make visits to other towns and cities both in the UK and the European continent. We also receive visitors from interested parties from other UK cities and towns.
Winter lectures are held in the Chester Grosvenor Museum. Presentations of interest to members are also given in our Head Office at Bishop Lloyd's Palace. In addition there are a number of social activities each year.
Membership of Chester Civic Trust gives individuals the opportunity to be informed of local issues and to be part of the lobbying process.
Help Us to Maintain our Heritage Now and in the Future
Most of our committees are comprised of members with professional expertise but we wish to include other members who have Chester's present and future at heart.
We are looking for a broader cross-section of our membership to become committee members and to participate in our day to day activities. The future of Chester belongs to the young so we are therefore particularly seeking younger members to represent their views and ideas.
