Shaping Callander’s Future

Callander is the latest community in the park area to make it an even better place in which to live or work and to visit.

Callander’s current 5 year Community Action Plan (CAP) was launched on 7 September at a drop-in event at Callander Hostel to which local residents and businesses were invited to attend. Community groups were on hand with displays and information to talk about their projects and to encourage local residents to sign up and get involved.

Callanders Community Action Plan 2017 – 2022 is the result of consultations through 2016 which included surveys, community meetings, focused meetings with pupils at Callander Primary and McLaren High Schools, local businesses and key public sector partners.  Once again thank you to everyone who took part in those discussions and consultations.  Your voice was invaluable in shaping a plan that truly reflects the concerns and ambitions of our community.

The Community Action Plan 2017 – 2022 is available to download https://www.thecommunitypartnership.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Callander_CAP_17-FINAL.pdf.

What happens next?

The priorities outlined in this plan will be taken forward by the community groups and a range of private, public and voluntary sector partners. Many already have champions who will take them forward and are already underway. Others do not have clear owners and will need to be further investigated.

Most of the work and projects by community groups is done by volunteers so if you are interested in getting involved with any of the activities in this plan please get in touch.
