The Charity Commission have scrutinised the Garden Bridge Trust trustees’ conduct and the management of the charity carefully and continue to monitor the charity’s progress in winding up. The Charity Commission intends to publish a concluding report on the running of the Garden Bridge Trust. This is to set out wider lessons policy makers and others can draw from it.
It is important to note the Charity Commission has a specific role to look at the extent to which trustees are meeting their legal duties and whether charities are complying with charity law. It is not in the regulatory remit of the Commission to examine other issues such as the merits of a project or how it is funded.
