Bridging the Gaps – Building the Future

Community Workshops in Alyth

On Sunday 17th January, 123 people came to a successful community event which took place in Alyth as a direct response to the flooding that occurred in July 2015.

Following on from the previous consultation exercises: Alyth 2020 and PKC Placecheck, residents were encouraged to attend to help Perth & Kinross Council, Alyth Development Trust and Alyth Community Council prioritise town improvements. Workshops covered ‘Tourism, heritage, arts & business’, ‘Supporting all ages in the community’, ‘Bridges & town centre’ and ‘Transport & accessibility’.  The workshops provided opportunities for the community to express their views and preferences for the placement and design of replacement footbridges across the burn and to identify other actions for improvement to make Alyth a more connected and sustainable place in the future.  Residents could also record their views on the exhibition boards at the events if they were unable to attend a workshop or complete Perth & Kinross Council’s survey about the replacement of the bridges.

The events were led by Alyth Development Trust, facilitated by PAS  (Planning Aid for Scotland) supported by Perth & Kinross Council and funded by Sustrans.  The next event will be on Sunday 31st January – everyone welcome!
