Minehead Development Trust

Introducing Minehead Development Trust

Minehead Development Trust (MDT) is a registered charity whose purpose is to develop a range of community projects for the benefit of local residents and visitors to the town.

Working with the community to identify and develop opportunities for social, economic and cultural regeneration in Minehead and the surrounding area.


Current Projects

Minehead Information Centre

MDT, in partnership with local councils and the Chamber of Trade, now operate the Minehead Visitor Centre in The Beach Hotel (run by the YMCA) near the sea front.. Threatened with closure by cutbacks in public spending, the Trust acted to secure this important facility for the benefit of the town’s tourism economy.

The Old Hospital

MDT is working with the NHS and partners to seek a viable future for the Old Hospital site as a community hub. The Trust is also asking local people to pledge their support to secure the buildings for community use.  Find out more from the weblink below.


Clanville Secret Garden

Originally a nursery for the old Clanville Grange and latterly the district council’s grounds maintenance division, MDT are looking into the feasibility of reopening this fascinating garden for the whole community to enjoy
