Dunblane Community Summit to reveal draft action plan

Discover Dunblane (BID) together with Dunblane Community Council (DCC) and Dunblane Development Trust (DDT) are convening a “Community Summit” to discuss the draft Community Action Plan Dunblane 2020, developed from the Town Centre Charrette.   The meeting will be on 20 February 2017 from 7.30 to 9pm in the Braeport Centre.   A large number of local organisations have been invited to attend and to provide comment on the draft action plan. The organisers have been meeting regularly to turn the results of the Town Centre Charrette into a Community Action Plan which will bring improvements and new activity to Dunblane.

Speaking about the plan, the group said:

“Our previous Action Plan expired at the end of 2014 after much had been achieved.   We hope that this new Action Plan, covering 2017 to 2020, reflects the needs of Dunblane – residents, businesses and visitors – and believe that the actions are aspirational but achievable.  

“The Action Plan shows what we as a community want to achieve – and will help us to get other partners involved, raise funds for new projects – and get the wider community of Dunblane involved.”

More details on the proposed actions will be provided at the meeting – and there will be an opportunity to comment on the actions and raise any issues.   The meeting will also be an opportunity to hear about a new project which aims to enhance the historic centre of the community around the cathedral.
