Local Place Plan Newton Stewart

We (NSI) have been awarded some funding from Dumfries and Galloway Council to develop a Local Place Plan for Newton Stewart. A Local Place Plan allows for residents in the community to have their say on how they would like to see Newton Stewart in the future.

Doing a Local Place Plan will involve a lot of community engagement to ensure we are getting everyone’s view. This will take form in holding drop-in’s and focus groups and creating surveys to gather views.

The first initial survey can be found here. We would be grateful if you can share it with other residents in Newton Stewart. We will also be holding a drop in session at McMillan Hall on Tuesday 28th February from 12-6pm to answer any questions you may have or to help you fill it in on paper.

If you have any questions or require a paper copy please message us or email
