Community Forums - by Will

It's election time again and I don't just mean the upcoming Lochee Council by-election but the Community Forums are looking for people interested in their communities to come forward to stand for election. This is an interesting position and it allows you to make a real difference to the local community.

You get the chance to discuss and decide on where money is spent. Projects have included bike racks for pupils at Craigie High School, community police officers - dedicated to the area and many other things too numerous to mention.

Details for our area are as follows;

Dundee South East - Linlathen, Mid Craigie and Douglas,
Community Regeneration Forum Elections 2007.

In 2004 the Scottish Executive announced the establishment of a new £104 million Community Regeneration Fund, Dundee was allocated £5.775 million.
To distribute this money, five local forums were set up and 15 people were elected to sit on each for 12 months. The forums aim to meet local needs and address the aspirations of the Regeneration Outcome Agreements. They also draw on community plans when making decisions on expenditure.
Come along and make a difference to your community.
