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
