Why a Charitable Trust?
The Hastings Greenway Trust was established in 2020 as a Charitable Incorporated Organization (CIO).
As an organisation with a legal structure, we can directly own assets, employ people and have access to funding streams that are not available to statutory bodies and others.
With a formal constitution and bank account
The Trusts key aims are:
To protect the original vision, and future legacy of the Hastings Greenway project.
To create a Borough-wide Greenway that can help meet existing and
future civic and community needs.
To secure a viable Greenway delivery management and maintenance programme working with other partners.
To ensure that the Greenway continues to act as a catalyst for the enhancement of the public realm (in support of the Local Plan).
‘Developing a community led safe, accessible, sustainable Greenway - an inspirational living landmark that improves the quality of life for now and future generations’
