OLDMELDRUM VISION STARTS WITH QUESTIONS – ASKING THE PUBLIC
Aberdeenshire Council officials are working with Oldmeldrum’s Community Council to develop a questionnaire for all people in Oldmeldrum about our Town’s future.
The group will ask a series of questions to make sure there is evidence of public issues that effect local people.
“This is not about proposing solutions to problems yet…. that comes later. We need to know what people’s problems are, their likes and dislikes and their concerns about living here. When we get information we will then be informed about what people say and that helps developing solutions, plans for the Town’s future. We may need to ask more questions and then ask opinions on options, but we will start with a questionnaire” said Andrew McCartney, Chair of the Group from the Community Council.
The group called ‘Future Vision of Oldmeldrum’ will be taking advice and drawing up questions that they believe will give the information needed. Debra Campbell of the Community Planning Partnership and other Aberdeenshire Council officials have assisted in getting the questionnaire under way.
Once the questionnaire is designed, circulated and hopefully returned, then the group will examine and determine what further information is required. The end result will be a Community action plan, that will be agreed by the public based on their responses.
