Renfrewshire Council’s Leader, Councillor Iain Nicolson, said: “At the heart of community planning is the people who live and invest in our communities. I would encourage all residents to come along to their local community planning event and put forward their view on what the priorities and vision for Renfrewshire should be.

“These events put decisions of what happens in local communities in the hands of the people who are most likely to benefit and their views will shape the new community plan ‘Our Renfrewshire’.”
