Our Place Our Future

CVS Inverclyde

Deadline: 30 June 2017 at 18:00

Inverclyde residents are being asked to help determine what they want to see happen in their local communities.

The area-wide conversation is being generated by Our Place Our Future, a project that will delve into a wide range of themes through a survey and series of community events running until the end of June 2017. Survey themes cover moving around and public transport; traffic, parking, streets and spaces; natural space, play and recreation; facilities and amenities; work and the local economy; housing and community; social interaction, identity and belonging; feeling safe; care and maintenance; plus influence and sense of control.

This, its first phase, is being coordinated and delivered by local community planning partnership, the Inverclyde Alliance, with funding support from the Big Lottery Fund Awards for All Scotland.

Respondents can feedback on specific questions of relevance to them. The Inverclyde Alliance survey team are also reaching out through the community events, where they will have the opportunity to spark thoughts and discussions by meeting people face to face.

The survey, which will run until Friday 30 June 2017, can be completed at
