Our Place Our Future comes to Oak Mall
The Oak Mall Shopping Centre in Greenock is the next venue for a series of Our Place Our Future community engagement events where Inverclyde residents will be asked what they want to see happen in their local area, while getting them thinking about how they can make it a reality.
The team will be in the Oak Mall from 10am to 4pm on Thursday 25th May, Friday 9th and Thursday 29th June, to encourage people to take the Our Place Our Future survey, which delves into a wide range of themes from traffic, parking, streets and spaces, to work, care, housing and local amenities.This, the first phase of the project, 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.
Similar events are planned for Branchton Community Centre on Thursday 1 June 6pm to 9pm, Boglestone Community Centre on Saturday 10 June 11am to 2pm, and Craigend Resource Centre on Thursday 15 June 6pm to 9pm.
Opinion will be gathered over the next two months via a survey and series of community events. Although the Our Place Our Future survey covers 14 key topics and can be completed in print form or online, respondents can also feedback on specific questions of relevance to them. Once the review is complete at the end of June, responses will be analysed over the summer with results announced this autumn. People can also join in the Inverclyde conversation by Tweeting #OurPlaceOurFuture.
The survey can be completed at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/OurPlaceOurFuture until Friday 30 June. Hard copies can be downloaded from the Community Planning Partnership page at: www.inverclyde.gov.uk/council-and-government/community-planning-partnership and are available from participating organisations in the Inverclyde Alliance. Surveys will also be issued via tenants and residents associations, community councils, action groups, sports clubs and youth groups.
