Thank you to everyone that came to our Public Consultation meeting on March 30th, 2019 at the annexe.
We have now collated the feedback from the discussions. The purpose of the meeting was to promote the work of the LCDT (Lochwinnoch Community Development Trust) and to gather the views of the community relating to the proposed water project, as well as other future projects. It was important to determine the level of support in the community, gain insight into the type of future development opportunities that people wanted, as well as any challenges that may be faced.
The meeting was attended by 53 people, including Cllr Bill Binks & MSP Tom Arthur, the ages ranged from 31 to >75, sadly there was no representation from individuals aged 18 to 30, finding ways to engage this age group is one of the first challenges we face.
Below are details of the topics that were discussed and a flavour of some of the 150 views that were captured by the facilitators. (A full list of the feedback can be downloaded below)
