Local Villages Partnership
A group of seven local Community Councils,
Lochwinnoch, Howwood, Kilbarchan, Brookfield, Bridge of Weir, Elderslie, Houston
This group meets periodically to share views and to distribute their annual allocation of grant funding from Renfrewshire Council.
Priorities for the LVP group
At their first meeting (21 March 2019), the LVP discussed and agreed an initial set of Local Priorities for their area.
Connectivity and transport The Local Partnership want to see villages which are well-connected to each other, when people can connect with each other too. Transport is a clear focus in this area, including both public transport and green routes.
Environment and Parks. The Local Partnership want well-maintained villages, with high quality public parks and a focus on street scene, including fly tipping, dog fouling and litter.
Access to services, facilities and assets. Improved access to what's going on in the community, including community activities, and making the most of their community buildings and facilities.
Village identity and character. The Local Partnership want to maintain the identity and character of the villages in the area. Key to this is developing and sustaining local community groups, and the delivery of local events.
