The City of Durham Trust is a local civic society and registered charity.

Our purpose is to celebrate, protect and enhance the heritage and landscape of the City.

The Trust is dedicated to giving a strong and independent voice to ordinary people who:

  • care about where they live and everything that makes the City of Durham such a special place;
  • have a store of knowledge and want to make a meaningful contribution;
  • want to participate in and influence planning in order to keep the City distinctive and liveable;
  • are keen to balance heritage and growth and to put sustainability at the heart of planning for the City.
