Over the next few months Dumfries and Galloway Council and DPAG (Dumfries Partnership Action Group) will be preparing a 10 year Shared Vision and Action Plan for Dumfries Town Centre. Rather than do it alone they want to make sure the plan is what the community and businesses want. Local people will have ideas they’d like to see happen – or you might even have a project you’d like to do yourself.
You have already helped set the agenda by completing a short community survey earlier this year, and CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE RESULTS
Revitalising Dumfries Town Centre is focused on delivery, and will be delivered in partnership with the community and key stakeholders, addressing change over the short, medium and long term. It is a series of community conversations and events where people are encouraged to come together to discuss and share ideas for the future of Dumfries Town Centre – to help improve Dumfries Town Centre as a place to live, work, study and visit.
The project aims to involve residents, young people, private, public and third sector organisations, and others with an interest in the revitalisation of the town centre. It is community and business led and delivered by a community-focused charity called Planning Aid for Scotland (PAS). PAS is working with Dumfries and Galloway Council and DPAG to facilitate this process in an open and collaborative way to ensure that the future vision for Dumfries Town Centre is an inclusive one.
You can download a briefing note about the project here – and please send it on to your friends and groups around the community.
We’ll be preparing a promotional flyer about events happening early February – which we’ll post here – and please look out for this.
We’ll be posting updates on this website during the project – and will also be providing regular newsletters to those on our mailing list. If you would like to sign up to our mailing list please enter your details below.
