The Gloucestershire Environmental Trust is classed as a Distributive Environmental Body by ENTRUST, the regulator of the Landfill Communities Fund. This means that the Trust can provide grants from funds generated by the Landfill Communities Fund for the benefit of Gloucestershire, its people and its environment.
The Trust, established in 1997, receives funds provided by Cory Environmental (Gloucestershire) Ltd, which owns and manages waste management operations in Gloucester, Cheltenham and Cirencester.
(For more information about Environmental Bodies, the Landfill Communities Fund, ENTRUST and Cory Environmental, please read our FAQs).
The Trust's objectives are:
the maintenance and repair of public amenities in the vicinity of landfill sites for the benefit of the inhabitants of Gloucestershire
the provision of open spaces in the vicinity of landfill sites for the recreation and other leisure-time occupations by the public
the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment in Gloucestershire
the restoration, preservation and repair of buildings of historical importance or architectural value.
Final landfill grants allocated ahead of Javelin Park opening
The Gloucestershire Environmental Trust has distributed money provided by the Landfill Communities Fund to Gloucestershire projects for the last 20 years, however, the decision to go ahead with building the Javelin Park Incinerator means that money available to the Trust from the Landfill Communities Fund will dry up next year.
