The Development Trust is an enterprise created by the community following the publication of a 5 Year Action Plan for the district with the help of the Coalfields Regeneration Trust.
We are an independent, not-for-profit organisation, committed to involving and being accountable to local people. We look to undertake a wide range of economic, environmental and social activities and services.
As a group, we aim to enable sustainable development in the area and will work alongside the local voluntary sector, public authorities and private sector to that end.
We hope to achieve our goals by making profits through trading and securing buildings and managing assets for the community. These profits are not-for-private benefit or gain or distributed to individuals but will be used to create community wealth and be reinvested with a lasting impact on the renewal and improvement of the area.
