GLENKENS & DISTRICT
COMMUNITY ACTION PLAN
The Glenkens & District Trust sponsored the creation of a Glenkens and District Community Action Plan, published in 2020 (see below for links). This action plan covers the Balmaghie, New Galloway & Kells, Dalry, Balmaclellan, Corsock & KPD, Parton and Crossmichael Community Council areas.
It sets out an overall goal that the Glenkens will be a connected, resilient and carbon neutral place, where people will want to live, work and visit, to bring up their families, and to grow old.
GDT saw commissioning a Community Action Plan for the Glenkens and district area as a vital step to ensuring that local funds are distributed wisely and strategically. Although wind farm fund distribution was a key driver to initiating the plan, the reach of the Community Action Plan goes beyond projects funded through that source and aspires to be a road map for the whole community over the next 5 years and beyond.
The Glenkens & District Community Action Plan now has a Steering Group, supported and co-ordinated by GCAT. The Steering Group is made up of people of all life experiences and interests from across our communities, who will review progress against the Plan, suggest interventions if some actions aren’t getting done, and ensure that the Action Plan remains up-to-date and relevant as our communities change. The role of GCAT’s Executive Manager includes a remit to support this group by ensuring that the actions they request are carried out, which means the group will be able to make a real difference in the area.
