The Civic Trust movement began in 1957 with the foundation of a single organisation based in London.

For several years the Civic Trust campaigned on its own throughout the United Kingdom, encouraging the growth of Civic Amenity Societies, good practice in the conservation of the built heritage and high standards in contemporary architecture and planning.

With its success came the need to devolve effort and responsibility and autonomous Civic Trusts were gradually established in other parts of the UK, The Scottish Civic Trust (1967) being the second.

All the confederate Civic Trusts share the same fundamental aims and objectives, directed to improving the quality of Britain's built environment, but they are administratively and financially independent, with their own Board of Trustees and priorities for action.
