Linwood Community Development Trust is on the brink of obtaining land from Renfrewshire Council to build much needed community facilities for Linwood.

Renfrewshire Council has now appointed a contractor to carry out a site investigation at Mossedge Playing fields (rear of Clippens School) and this work will be completed by the beginning of August. A full analytical report will be received by September 2013 and if Linwood CDT is happy with the results, we will proceed with a full asset transfer of the land.

With future funding support, the land will be used to develop a 3G/4G football pitch with changing facilities and a community wellbeing centre for Linwood. This reflects what the people of Linwood want to see happening in their town following results outlined in the 'Linwood Community Action Plan'. It is hoped people will be inspired to help 'Build Linwood from the Inside out' in order to make it a more attractive, happier and healthier place to live.

 

 

Linwood Community Development Trust, in partnership with Linwood Community Council, is also delighted to announce that we have received £4,000 for our 'Linwood in Bloom' Project and £10,000 for the 'Light up linwood' Project (Christmas Lights) through 'Local Area Committee' funding.

Together we CAN make a difference! After all, this is Our Community, Our Future and who best knows what our community needs than the community itself?

Creating a Wave of Change!

Latest news: Grow Trust - No Permission Required

Grow Trust is an emerging organisation being founded by: Linwood Community Development Trust, Beith Community Development Trust and Lochboisdale Amenity Trust based on the Montragon Model of Growth and Development within the context of Scotland and the UK. This is helping us all to develop a shared vision, aspiration, technical models, benchmark and common language. In addition to the development of the Grow Trust, each Trust has a requirement to develop their own organisation. The resources of time, experience, learning, knowledge, experimentation mentoring and a host of other resources need to be devoted to the development of this. This needs to be facilitated and supported and should be a priority over the next five years.

Due to the nature of the development trusts themselves the need for this development approach has to be set within the community context. That is, the development Trust develops not just as an end in itself, as part of the wider development in the community it serves.
