Support for the National Trust // April 23rd, 2012 // Constituency News
Gisela Stuart met with Lizzie Hatchman, National Trust Birmingham Properties Manager, to discuss the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and the National Trust’s new strategy for its work in Birmingham. The meeting took place at the Birmingham Back to Backs.
The National Trust collected over a million signatories against the proposed changes in the framework of the NPPF. The report has now been published.
“Touring the back to backs and seeing the history of Birmingham heritage preserved in that small section of the City Centre, is a clear demonstration of why the work of the National Trust is essential and should be supported.
The Kinver rock houses and Clent Hills are two other well known sites protected by the National Trust.
The Trust is a National charity, relying solely on income from membership, donations and revenue raised from their commercial operations.”
