Cory Environmental Trust in Southend-on-Sea
The Trust has six Trustees, two of whom are nominated, one by Southend-on-Sea Borough Council and one by Cory Environmental. The other four Trustees are elected alternately, each to serve for four years. The Trustees usually meet at three monthly intervals.
During 2003/4, the Landfill Communities Fund, under which the Trust operates, was reformed by the Government and the funding available nationally was substantially reduced. However, through generous, on-going donations by Cory Environmental, the Southend Trust currently receives annual funding in excess of £160,000, for distribution in support of new projects in Southend to improve public amenities, repair churches and other buildings of historic and architectural interest and for ecological projects.
Since its launch in 1997 through to March 2011, the Trust has distributed £1,850,000 to 128 projects which have been completed successfully and, in addition, grants totaling £350,000 have been agreed for 15 projects in progress.
