BECCLES FENLAND CHARITY TRUST
Beccles Town Council acts as the Sole Trustee for Beccles Fenland Charity Trust. The charity was established in March 2011 to manage lands granted to the town by Queen Elizabeth I in her Charter dated 1584.
The lands that are ‘held on trust’ by the charity are shown on this map and marked out by a red line. The area of land extends from Goose Green, over the common and across the by-pass all the way up to the river.
The trustee meets as and when required, and trust meetings are usually held directly after the Beccles Town Council meeting. The trust also has a committee structure in place which mirrors the town council’s structure, details of which can be found here.
