Communities across Dundee set their priorities for the next five years07/12/17
More community led initiatives could be coming to your local area if the Neighbourhood Services Committee approve the Local Community Plans (2017-2022) on Monday (December 11).
The priorities and outcomes have been set by the Local Community Planning Partnerships (LCPP) following extensive collaboration with communities captured in the Engage Dundee Process.
Local Community Planning Partnerships continue to flourish across all eight multi-member wards and they continue to shape city-wide and local action.
Each community area has set out outcomes that they want to achieve with a view to reducing inequalities in their area. Some of the ways the communities are seeking to make their area fairer are:
- Establishing a MacMillan Cancer Support Hub in Ardler
- Improving transport connections by supporting local people to campaign for more appropriate bus routes that meet their needs
- Closing the Jobs Gap though a variety of ways including, extending jobs clubs to include evening and weekends and act on recommendations from the DD4 Employability Pilot
Neighbourhood Services Convener Kevin Cordell said: “These plans have been led by the community for the community.
“Through the Local Community Partnerships, we can encourage more grassroots participation in council decision-making to ensure the Plans deliver for the local community.
“In Dundee we work to ensure that the community are at the forefront of everything we do and these plans highlight this.”
