Administrative / Biographical History

From 1990 to 2006, the Glasgow Conservation Trust West was a registered charity with a remit to conserve and promote the historic West End of Glasgow, one of the finest examples of Victorian town development in Britain. In partnership with Glasgow City Council and Historic Scotland, the Trust encouraged original research, published conservation information, coordinated capital grants for restoration projects and promoted activities to enhance public appreciation of our architectural heritage.

The Glasgow Conservation Trust West formally closed in March 2006, but in 2007 the Glasgow City Council, with the support of Historic Scotland, established a new independent body with a remit to promote the conservation of the city's historic built environment in its 22 Conservation Areas: The Glasgow City Heritage Trust.
