The Scottish Civic Trust was founded in 1967 in the belief that
it is neither right nor proper that we, the public, should sit back
and leave it to official action to procure these ends. If the
public gives the impression that it does not care, is indifferent
and apathetic, and criticises 'them' when things go wrong or when
things are not done, it will inevitably dispirit those local
councillors, officials and others with whom the decisions rest.
The most effective and democratic method of fighting
indifference, apathy and ill-informed criticism, is for a local
Civic or Amenity Society to be formed. One of the objects of The
Scottish Civic Trust, which was formed in 1967, is to help
communities to form Civic or Amenity Societies, and to assist such
Societies thereafter when they are functioning.
