A9 Co-Creative News

co creativeCommunity ideas for A9 dualling on show  Locals are encouraged to come along to Birnam Arts Centre next month as the A9 Dualling co-creative process continues
Community ideas for the A9 dualling between the Pass of Birnam and the Tay Crossing will be on show with over 150 ideas received at the events in January. The A9 Co-Creative, a partnership between the Birnam to Ballinluig A9 Community Group and Transport Scotland, and supported by planning experts PAS, will be hosting further public events in March. The community is encouraged to attend, view all submitted design ideas and make their voice heard.
Before that, there will be a series of community outreach events in a number of locations in late February/early March when locals can meet members of the A9 Co-creative team and learn more about the process.
The ‘co-creative process’, which is running until June 2018, is tasked with coming up with a preferred road design that meets the needs of both the local community and Transport Scotland.
The next series of events will invite residents of Dunkeld, Birnam and the surrounding communities, whether they submitted an idea themselves or not, to come along and see the ideas submitted by the community. The events will provide opportunities for discussion, feedback, and agreement of the “long list” of design ideas that will proceed to the next stage.
All ideas will be exhibited at Birnam Arts on the 26th and the 29th March. The sessions, where there will be a chance to discuss the ideas with the co-creative team, will take place on:
26th March from 4pm - 8pm / 29th March from 4pm - 8pm
Local residents are also invited to attend a series of community outreach events, where they are invited to pop in and meet with members of the A9 Co-Creative team, and find out more about the process. These are taking place:
Wednesday 7th March - Dalguise Village Hall - 4-7pm / Thursday 8th March - Amulree Village Hall - 4-7pm
If you are unable to attend the forthcoming events please visit www.A9Co-Creative.scot - where you can learn more about the process and how to submit your comments online.
