Consultation and engagement workshops for local place plans

The Scottish Community Development Centre is working with Dumfries and Galloway Council to deliver a training workshop for groups considering developing a Local Place Plan.

Whether you’ve got plenty of experience in community volunteering or are new to community involvement, this course will have something to offer you.

It will look at some of the ways they share information with people or invite their opinions, who it’s important to work with and how they get beyond the people who are already involved in changing things in their community – reaching some of the lesser heard voices.

Methods to stimulate discussion and the gathering of ideas will be explored.

All community groups and community councils interested in gathering the views of their community for local place planning are invited to take part.

The 3-hour online course takes place on Tuesday 27th February, 10am to 1pm.

There is a maximum allocation of two places per group/community council. If you would like to attend, please send your details to
