The East Kintyre Local Development Plan for 2020-2025 is now live!

Carradale Community Trust and East Kintyre Community Council did not expect to deliver our  Local Development Plan in the midst of such an epic crisis.  However, maybe there is no better time for us all to reflect on the future and the differences that each of us can make?  In that spirit, we hope that you will follow the link through to our page and help us in planning for better times ahead. 

A huge thank you from the whole community to the LDP team for the work involved in producing the wide ranging and inclusive 2020-2025 East Kintyre Local Development Plan.
