West End Local Community Plan 2012-17

Last week, I mentioned that I had attended the launch of the eight news local community plans across the city.

The West End's new local community plan was written following an extensive consultation exercise with the West End community, including:


• 500 post cards distributed in prominent venues and shops across the area seeking views of local people about ways in which the quality of life could be improved

• Young people involved with the Pupil Representative Council at Harris Academy were asked to confirm local priorities

• Public events held in Dundee West Church, outside the supermarket on Perth Road, at Blackness Fire Station and at the WestFest community festival, at which local people were given the opportunity to discuss issues and to prioritise action

• All community groups and tenant and residents’ organisations were offered stakeholder meetings and 4 were held to discuss concerns and identify issues with a focus on solutions

• Dundee West Church’s Healthy lunch club and Logie and St John’s Toddlers and were asked to confirm priorities for action

• Local staff from a range of services asked to express their views on local needs and services
