Community Action Plan

We are thrilled to be able to share the findings of

Glen Urquhart’s Community Action Plan.

In 2021, GURCA, Soirbheas and the Glen Urquhart Community Council came together to form a Steering Group with the intent of creating a Community Action Plan. This document forms the vision for the community over the next 20 years. It identifies projects, services and other initiatives that the Community would like to see implemented. It will help us all prioritise our resources and channel funding requests to what our community deems to be the most important.

Funding was awarded from the following organisations:

Local Energy Scotland £16,000

Soirbheas £5,000

Historic Environment Scotland £2,500

GURCA, Chamber of Commerce £1,000

The steering group instructed Duncan Bryden (Bryden Associates) and Helen Smith (Rowan Tree Consulting) to produce the plan and met regularly to assist this process throughout 2022. Online surveys were completed via the Commonplace platform, paper copies of the survey were made available and a series of Outreach/Pop up events were held including at Community Meetings, Tattie Day and a stall at Market on the Green (all within Covid guidelines at the time).

GURCA, Soirbheas, the Community Council and the Loch Ness Hub will all be collaborating to implement these actions and help other groups to do so too.
