54 years of celebrating, enhancing and safeguarding Halifax's built and natural environment.

Halifax Civic Trust - Services

Halifax Civic Trust is an active organisation striving to safeguard and improve the local environment.  It is run by a committee which makes representation on many issues, ranging from wildlife corridors and footpaths to highway schemes, threatened historic buildings, local development plans and, especially, on planning applications.


Can we help you?

Many of our past and current issues have been brought to our attention by members of the public, and we welcome input from anyone concerned by potentially damaging or inappropriate developments. Indeed, we rely on people to be our eyes and ears around town, so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you think we can help.

We do this by:
