Oldmeldrum folk are being asked to come to a special public event being held in the Oldmeldrum Royal British legion this coming Saturday 27 May from 9.30am to midday. This is your chance to have an input to help Oldmeldrum will develop over the next many years. Any major survey went to everyone in the community and you can’t find out the results at this event.
This will form the basis of further questions and consultation. AND a final plan. The Community Council wants your feedback.
Click on and watch the video below, and then find out more below that.
Why do this consultation?
Many people feel that organizations like Aberdeenshire Council do not listen to local people. What a council often hears is a myriad of different voices, often competing, with little knowledge of what are the real views out there. Sometimes some groups can shout louder than others, but that does not make it right only to listen to the loudest or best organised.
That is why Meldrum Community Council, encouraged by myself as a local councillor, are doing a ‘Visions’ project. It’s based on a survey which leads to a plan for our locality.
This locality plan, can be kept refreshed by the community and should inform anyone from Aberdeenshire Council, the NHS, police and fire and rescue, who care to look, what the local priorities are. For my part as a local councillor, this will help in getting these organisations to deliver what people want for our community. It will have been properly consulted and democratically constructed.
Please come along and make this an effective ‘VISION’ for the future of Oldmeldrum.
