Our Place, Our Future

The area-wide conversation is being generated by Our Place Our Future, a project that will delve into a wide range of themes from traffic, parking, streets and spaces, to work, care, housing and local amenities. 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.
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. 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.
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 interation, identity and belonging; feeling safe; care and maintenance; plus influence and sense of control.
