Community Development Trust for Broxburn & Uphall?

A group of local people formed the Community Hub Steering Group last autumn to explore possible ways to take forward larger projects to benefit the community. Their initial aim was to take the former Broxburn Library building into community ownership to create studio space for local artists and performers, office space for community groups, a café, and a shop.

Unfortunately, this fell through but, rather than just give up, they decided to continue to investigate possibilities for the area. With the help of generous financial assistance from the Broxburn and Uphall Town Centre Management Group, they engaged Community Enterprise, a local consultancy firm. Their brief was to carry out a community engagement exercise to explore the views and needs of people and organisations in the area.

This work has recently been completed and we are looking forward to receiving their final report and draft action plan. One of the options they were asked to investigate was whether or not there is an appetite to create a Community Development Trust or similar body to take things forward. Depending on their findings there may be a public meeting called to discuss this in the near future. Watch this space!
