A project to create a Local Action Plan for North Queensferry is currently being developed. The aim is to use a ‘charrette-style’ approach to engage with as many residents, organisations, businesses and generations as possible.
A charrette is a type of workshop which will allow people to put forward their ideas for the community. These will be gathered to create a series of ideas so that the whole community can discuss and debate the options. The intention is to create a shared vision for the village, a deliverable land-use strategy and to shape community decision making and investment.
The vision and goals for the Local Action Plan for North Queensferry will be developed by local people and will include short, medium, and long-term objectives. These may contribute towards the development of a Neighbourhood Plan in the future.
As we move forward under current restrictions, we are also looking at alternatives ways to run these engagement sessions. These might involve online surveys and questionnaires and virtual gatherings. We would combine this with hard copy forms and none digital ways to submit suggestions.
We will continue to keep up this page up to date with the latest ways that you can get involved and what stage the plan is at.
