2016 Kintyre Community Action Plan Review

In 2012 South Kintyre Development Trust published the Community Action Plans which identified the needs and ambitions of each community. They levered support and funding in to our local area to help deliver improvements including Campbeltown Town Hall, Dunaverty Village Hall and the Kintyre Way.

SKDT is reviewing the action plans for Campbeltown, East Kintyre and Southend to ensure that they remain up to date and fit for purpose. We want to identify future projects based on the community’s needs and aspirations. These projects will have a better chance of success if the community shows its support by completing the review which will provide the evidence to back up funding applications.

 Each area has developed its own survey which you can access online as follows:

CAMPBELTOWN    https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SKDTCAMPBELTOWN
SOUTHEND     https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SKDTSOUTHEND
EAST KINTYRE   https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SKDTEASTKINTYRE

 

Please encourage your friends and neighbours to complete this survey. You can pick up printed copies from Campbeltown Town Hall and Muneroy Stores. We are also looking for volunteers to distribute the questionnaire to neighbours. If you are able to help please get in touch.

If you need help completing these forms please email: info@skdt.org. We can also arrange a meeting or telephone call to go through the survey with you. To book an appointment please telephone 01586 552870

2012 Community Action Plans

 

In 2012 South Kintyre Development Trust published community action plans for East Kintyre, West Kintyre, Campbeltown and Southend. The purpose of the action plans was to identify the needs and ambitions of each community and to lever support and funding in to our local area to help deliver these improvements. They have already helped to secure funding for many valuable projects, including Campbeltown Town Hall, Dunaverty Village Hall, and The Kintyre Way.

 

These action plans describe each of the areas in detail, state the vision for the future of the communities, and the actions that they want to take to improve their communities.

 

In total 2132 households received a householder survey with 975 completed surveys being returned giving a 45% overall return rate.

 

SKDT is planning to review the action plans to ensure that they remain up to date and fit for purpose. By updating them, we can tick off completed projects and add new priorities and projects we would like to tackle in the future. This will give these projects the best chance of success because funders see community action plans as evidence of strong community support for projects and often ask for this sort of evidence to back up funding applications.

 

We are planning a series of public meetings at local venues around Kintyre which everyone will be invited to attend and contribute to.
