The Bath Preservation Trust is an independent charity, registered with the Charity Commission of England & Wales, and is a company limited by guarantee. It has a voluntary Chairman and board of Trustees, approximately ten permanent staff and 1,400 subscribing members. With prudent management the Trust is financially self-sufficient and independent of any controlling agency; a unique position for a heritage organization to hold within the UK.
Donations to the Trust are always welcome.
The more members the Trust has, the more weight its views carry when the historic beauty of Bath is threatened. The Trust needs more members not only for financial reasons but also to strengthen its influence with planning and other authorities.
