The Fitzrovia Trust
Established in 1985, the Fitzrovia Trust acquires vacant and run-down properties of architectural and historical significance and brings them back into beneficial use for the community.
In particular, we aim to increase the supply of affordable housing and to provide shops which meet the needs of local residents.
The Trust believes that these aims can be achieved alongside the preservation of historic buildings and other facilities in the area. This means working in partnership with local authorities, housing associations, local businesses and other interested stakeholders to identify development opportunities which can make a meaningful difference in people’s lives.
We currently own six houses in Warren Street and we have a lease on a playground and nursery in Whitfield Street.
All the upper floors of our Warren Street properties are let to housing associations or managed by the Trust, taking nominations from Camden Council’s housing waiting list. The ground floors and basements are let to independent businesses and this generates an income to make the Trust a viable enterprise.
Like other neighbourhoods in London, Fitzrovia is a very diverse community. We are very keen to ensure that the Trust’s membership and Management Council are reflective of the community it serves. Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a member or getting involved with the work of the Trust.
