Braemar Community Action Plan Approved by Community Council

At its meeting on Monday 18th February, Braemar Community Council approved the draft version of the Community Action Plan (CAP); the result of almost a year’s work in consultation with local people, and development by the Steering Group. Now it’s time for Action!

A Co-ordinating Group has been formed to oversee the development and implementation of the CAP and to keep the community informed. Four central themes have been identified:

1. Community Services, Facilities and Transport

2. Visitor Services, Facilities and Strategy

3. Youth

4. Housing, Education & Employment

The next step is to identify members of the community who along with representatives of statutory agencies will work together to deliver the outcomes of the CAP under the four themes named above. These sub-groups will identify priorities from the information gathered in the public consultations and will explore ways of putting these priorities into action. There will be opportunities for everyone to get involved and to find a role that suits their skills, interests and level of time commitment they can give. For the Community Action Plan to be implemented there needs to be Community Action.
