Leith Civic Trust was first established in 1962. Dedicated to the protection of the built history of Leith and the protection of these assets it was also established to promote the history of the former town.

With the Trust having effectively gone to sleep in the late 90's for a variety of reasons, existing members of the Trust brought it back to life in early 2012.

(a) To stimulate public interest in, and care for, the beauty, history and character of the area of the Leith area and its surroundings

(b) To encourage the preservation, development and improvement of features of general public amenity or historic interest in the Leith area

(c) To encourage high standards of architecture and town planning in the Leith Area
