Lenzie Community Development Trust (LCDT) was officially established in October 2017 as an entity to support active citizenship, contribute to civil renewal and to help people get involved and have a say about local services and issues.
We exist to benefit the whole of the community and our focus includes sustainable community development, environmental protection, the provision of housing and services in Lenzie and promoting and preserving our local culture, heritage and history.
About development trusts
Development trusts are community owned and led organisations, that work to combine community led action with an enterprising approach to address and tackle local needs and issues. Their aim is to create social, economic and environmental renewal in a defined geographical area, creating wealth within that area and keeping it there.
Lenzie CDT's five board members consist of the following people:
Chris has been active with LCDT since the very beginning. A retired GP, she has served the community for over 40 years.
Since retirement Chris enjoys charity work, gardening, and travel.
Margaret has been active in the community since before the start of LCDT. A retired Psychologist with an interest in the relationship between the place where we live and our health and wellbeing.
