Set up in 1973, Dundee Civic Trust is a voluntary body and charitable trust which aims to encourage the highest standards of design in new buildings and regeneration projects and to stimulate the public’s interest in the City’s urban heritage.

Our members care for the historic City of Dundee and its architecture and environment. We feel that a quality environment is important as it impacts on people’s sense of place and identity, encourages economic development and tourism and provides the backdrop for historic and artistic events.

Come and join us! By joining the Trust, you will meet like-minded people who care about the City and want to improve it. In addition, your membership adds weight to the Trust’s influence with developers and authorities alike Join Us Here. You don’t need to live in Dundee; you don’t need to be from Dundee; all you need is to want the best for Dundee.
