York Civic Trust


York Civic Trust is a membership organisation, open to all who wish to protect and enhance York's architectural and cultural heritage, to champion good design and to advance the high place which York holds amongst the cities of the world. The Trust values its independence, but seeks to work collaboratively with the City of York Council and other organisations.

York Civic Trust is interested in good modern design which is sensitive in scale and context to its environment. They have found that these concerns are of wide interest across the generations in York. Buildings need to be good neighbours and to complement and ideally enhance those which are already there. The Trust have a powerful voice and in a city of such historic relevance it is important that there is a body to put forward an informed and independent view.
