How to apply
This is an excellent opportunity to understand the workings of a charitable body and to join a happy and hard-working team.
Hampstead Garden Suburb is recognised internationally as one of the finest examples of early twentieth century domestic architecture and town planning. It is a conservation area within the London Borough of Barnet and contains a large number of listed buildings. There are over 3,800 houses and 1,300 flats on the Suburb, as well as commercial properties, public buildings, woods and open spaces.
The Hampstead Garden Suburb Trust was set up in 1968, on the initiative of residents, to maintain and preserve the character and amenities of the Suburb. It does this principally through its ownership of properties leased to residents and through a Scheme of Management. The Scheme applies to freehold properties owned by residents, which now make up a large majority of Suburb houses. In both cases, application must be made to the Trust for any alterations affecting the appearance or use of the properties concerned.
There are eight unpaid Trustees who serve on the Trust Council and are the directors of the company. Four are elected by Trust members and four are appointed by outside professional and amenity bodies (the Law Society, the Royal Institute of British Architects, the Royal Town Planning Institute and the Victorian Society).
The Trust has a small staff headed by the Trust Manager, Nick Packard. Further information can be found on our website.
