This timeline, created for the 50th anniversary, highlights some landmark moments in the Trust's history. 

See how the civic movement in Scotland grew from strength to strength, through projects such as the saving of New Lanark, Facelift Glasgow, and of course Doors Open Days.

The search is on for 2018's best new building, public realm or designed landscape or heritage restoration project in Scotland.

For the first time we are welcoming nominations from architects, landscape architects, other designers and organisations such as local authorities, building preservation trusts, housing association etc. as long as they can demonstrate support from the local community for the project and evidence of positive differences made such as community benefit and placemaking. Civic societies, community councils, development trusts and other community-based voluntary groups or heritage societies are of course warmly encouraged to keep their nominations coming in.
