Imagine Udny is a series of community conversations and workshops where people are encouraged to come together to discuss and share ideas for the future of the Udny area – with a particular focus on Pitmedden and the need for community facilities. It is an initiative of the Udny Community Trust and is delivered by the charity PAS.
What is the Imagine Udny Charretteplus trying to do?
Building on previous research it aims to gather the views of residents, young people, local groups and charities, local businesses, landowners, developers, the Council, and others, to share ideas, set priorities and create a shared 5, 10, and 20 year vision for the area. This will lead to a community action plan and a spatial masterplan for the Udny area (a Local Place Plan). Importantly this will be used to feed into the Main Issues Report (MIR) stage of the next Aberdeenshire Local Development Plan, which is due in early 2019, and Formartine Community Planning processes.
What is Charretteplus®?
PAS’s Charretteplus® programme is where the community sets the agenda for change, it focuses specifically on aligning spatial planning with community planning. The aim of Charretteplus is to work with the whole community to find out what their priorities are, create a shared vision for their place, and a realistic community plan to achieve change.
The second event was held on the 6th December in the Pitmedden Village Hall and now the PAS team are bringing together all the ideas and responses into a final community action plan and spatial master-plan.
