The Buckinghamshire Conservation Trust was initially established in 2008, to conserve the natural and historic environment of Buckinghamshire, particularly but not exclusively the deserted village and other earthworks at Quarrendon Leas on the outskirts of Aylesbury. It is a registered charity, no. 1150881.
The Trust was established by Buckinghamshire County Council as a standalone company limited by guarantee and a registered charity, initially to ensure that the rich history and the recreational value of Quarrendon Leas was conserved as surrounding areas became developed to provide more housing, and in the longer-term to acquire and manage new green spaces.
The Trust seeks to provide public benefit by: establishing, promoting, enhancing, maintaining and managing sites, buildings and objects of natural or historic interest in Buckinghamshire and facilitating public access to them.
The Trust delivers through working with committed volunteers and through the support of commercial and external funding partners.
- to sustain and enhance biodiversity in line with local, regional and national policy;
- promote for the benefit of the public at large the provision of facilities for recreation or other leisure time occupation in the interests of social welfare;
