Community Place Plan Information and Consultation The Killin & Ardeonaig community have undertaken several versions of Community Action Plans over the years and as their current Community Action Plan had come to the end of its 5 year timescale the community were keen to review their current priorities and vision for the area. They also wanted to evolve their Community Action Plan to take account of the new opportunities that the Planning Act 2019 introduced with the communities able to now produce Place Plans that will be used to inform and influence the National Park and Stirling Council Local Development Plans.  

Unfortunately, Covid-19 and the resulting lock down significantly disrupted the engagement process. A draft plan was produced and circulated to the Community Council and members of KAT, however following on from a strange and unsettling period for many it was felt that an additional period of community participation would be useful before publishing the Community Place Plan. 

The link below will take you to the draft plan and survey which will run until 16th April 2021.
