Do you want to make your community a better place? Then sign up for a new development trust aiming to improve Carnoustie.

The Carnoustie Community Development Trust (CCDT) was formed to benefit the town in a number of ways, but to do so requires that as many Carnoustie folk get involved as possible.

An interim board has been formed for the group and it is hoped to formally establish the CCDT within a matter of weeks. Under their remit are areas such as urban and rural regeneration; the management of community land and associated assets for the community benefit; the provision and improvement of recreational and sporting facilities and opportunities; the advancement of education and training; advancement of the arts, heritage and culture; economic advancement; protection of the environment and the enhancement of the town’s ability to attract tourists.

Interim chair of the CCDT, Derek Miller, stressed that the backing of the community is vital to achieving these goals and improving our town.

He said: “It will be crucial for the credibility of the CCDT to have as large a membership as possible, and that will be an early priority for the Interim Board.”

It is free to join the CCDT and there are adult and junior memberships available. Application forms are available from the ACCESS office at the Burgh Chambers and also Carnoustie Library.
