Rosehearty folk told: have your say!

Banffshire Partnership has been asked by Aberdeenshire Council to help towns and villages in its area to publish community plans in booklet form, they say.

The plans will tell Aberdeenshire Council, Grampian Police, the NHS and other agencies and services what local people want to see happen and identify those who can help make those plans become a reality.

However, at present, a plan for the village of Rosehearty does not currently exist. The Banffshire Partnerhsip, therefore, are asking local residents to have their say on what they would like to see happen.

“To give everyone a chance to contribute their ideas, the Banffshire Partnership in conjunction with Rosehearty Community Council has organised a public meeting to be held in the Rosehearty School,” a leaflet promoting the community action plan says.

The meeting is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, February 27, at 7pm. Refreshments will be provided on the evening.

A representative from the Rosehearty Community Council informed the Fraserburgh Herald that to have a voice at the meeting, members of the public necessarily need not speak at the meeting, but can instead choose to write their ideas down during the course of the evening.

Topics that can be included in the community plan include community activities, jobs and the economy, crime and community safety, and more.

In turn, ideas that can be developed in the plan include a new use for the old library, a community cafe, a heritage centre, and the issues of dog fouling in the village.
