PCDT is an incorporated organisation. As a Development Trust our stated aims and objectives included the provision of social and community facilities, supporting local environment initiatives, supporting local heritage and cultural improvements, youth development and providing support to local people, groups and businesses.
Having taken advice PCDT Board are of the opinion that the benefits of being a SCIO outweigh any potential disadvantages and are unanimously recommending to members a proposal to convert to a SCIO. It is however important to note that this is a one-way opportunity. A limited company can convert to a SCIO but a SCIO cannot convert back to a company, it would have to be dissolved.
You can read about the proposal and if you are a full member of PCDT then you can vote here.
