A call has gone out to residents to have their say in shaping the future of their own community.

Renfrewshire Council will lead a consultation with Foxbar residents to create a Place Plan, which will identify areas for potential change and enhancement.

The Council has secured funding from the Scottish Government’s Making Places Initiative, which supports communities to take a leading role in shaping their local areas.

The pilot scheme is expected to provide a template for Place Plans across Renfrewshire and will be led by residents, businesses and community groups through a series of workshops and events.

Anyone interested in taking part can sign up to a mailing list.

Convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Communities, Housing and Planning Policy Board, Councillor Marie McGurk, said:  “The consultation will be community led from day one and puts locals right at the heart of the project.

“The aim is to empower people to become much more involved in the planning of their places and show what role they can play in its future.

“It’s the first of its kind in Renfrewshire and the community’s likes, dislikes and aspirations will be there from every stage of the process and we will work with them to deliver what they’d like to see.”
