G&D Community Development Plan

Plan for the future

Post in Community Development by Ed Tarr
TGDDC have been chatting with the community, for some time now, to look at what the community's priorities for the future are. Join us on the 21st March to confirm the way forward.

So, what is the plan?  Easter eggs for the kids that's what!

TGDDC have looked at the 2016 survey and vision for the future and set this alongside your vision for the future as of 2019.  We have engaged with the community, in a number of ways, to get your views on community development and there are six key themes:-
  1. Community Ownership

  2. Community Energy

  3. Utilities

  4. Community Care

  5. Community Groups & Events

  6. Business & Tourism

Themes do not differ too much to your 2016 vision, but having an agreed Community Development Plan will help the company plan their workload and move positively forward.

The Community Development Plan has been developed by The Garve & District Development Company but is endorsed by the Garve and District Community Council and Lochluichart Community Trust and representatives from all community organisations will be on hand to answer any questions you might have.

Wow! That is some amount of work that's gone into producing that PDF plan! Well done to all involved, a heroic effort. Now to book a few days holiday to read it :-)

Congratulations to our Development Officers and TGDDC Board for all the hard work and the time taken to produce such a comprehensive and informative Community Development Plan. 

It's interesting to see how the 6 strategic themes have evolved from the analysis. The RAG status is also great in showing us just how much has been acheived or is ongoing within the community.

This is really encouraging for the future of the community. I hope people will feel enthused to participate with ideas, views and skills.

Thank you for all that you are doing on behalf of our community

Blair and Moira, thank you so much for your comments.  Lucy and I have really enjoyed our first year with The Garve & District Development Company and the fact that an agreed plan will very soon be in place is a tremendous step forward for the whole community.  We can't wait to move some of these exciting ideas forward!
