Please take a few minutes to fill in our 'Foundations for Recovery' survey! 🙏
This programme has commissioned three consultancy companies to investigate the viability of 26 separate ideas under lots dealing with heritage and culture, buildings and assets and learning and jobs. The initiatives that we take forward to be funded over the next few years will help make North Carrick an even better place to live, work, visit and play. Your views will help to identify priorities and to shape future planning and decision making. The programme will identify realistic and deliverable projects that can be achieved through community and partnership activity. This survey is targeted at the business sector and is part of a wider consultation which will ensure that the voices of people in North Carrick are heard and contribute to how the ideas are prioritised going forward.
Thank you! 😀
