Moniaive Initiative is being funded in 2020/21 and 2021/22 by the Scottish Government’s Investing in Communities fund to carry out local consultation. This will enable us to identify key challenges in our community, and to develop projects and local interaction that could help address those challenges.
We started by talking to local groups and organisations, to identify some of the challenges they are facing. We went into the local Primary and Secondary schools to ask Glencairn youngsters for their opinions. During May / June 2021 we held a series of online public discussions on a range of key subjects (including Infrastructure, Economy, Buildings and Outdoor Spaces), to give local residents an opportunity to have their say.
Now we are busy collating the key points from all these discussions into a series of questions to put to the entire community. Our forthcoming SHAPING GLENCAIRN survey will be distributed to every household in Glencairn during early July.
Please do take the time to complete our survey and share your thoughts, ideas and opinions.
We will use the results of this survey, along with comments and ideas raised in our wider consultation, to develop our upcoming Glencairn & Moniaive Action Plan (GMAP) 2021-2026. This document will lay out a range of potential actions that we as a community could take to increase local sustainability and resilience. Moniaive Initiative will use this document to demonstrate key issues within our community and to gain support for future funding applications.
