Community Trust open day for Copshaw: Consultation to look at feasibilty of Holm Hill buy-out

 
 
 

NEWCASTLETON & District Community Trust (NDCT) are holding an Open Day on December 4 in connection with the start of the community consultation which will then close on December 31.
This is the opportunity for the community to see and hear about the outcome of the feasibility studies that were commissioned by NDCT to investigate how community ownership of Holm Hill would benefit the community.
NDCT believe that owning the land and developing it over time to create new initiatives which complement what is already in place will give greater control over the future.
Owning part of Holm Hill will allow choices and opportunities which are currently not available and NDCT are keen to ensure that the community does not miss this once in a lifetime chance to build a better, more secure future for ourselves.
The Open Day will run from noon until 6.30pm and everyone is invited to attend to see the plans. The Community Council will meet from 7pm in the Hall to hear feedback and to seek a wide range of views from the community.

Full details will be published on the NDCT website
www.visitnewcastleton.com/Holm-Hill-buyout/ after December 4.
New Jobs
The Trust have also announced that two brand new jobs will be created in Newcastleton next year.
Job descriptions are currently being finalised and recruit-
ment for both positions will take place in January.
The post of Development Officer, whose role will be to drive forward the community Development Plan and
supervise the Dark Sky accreditation programme, driving the valuable star-gazing status that will help to sustain the community and businesses out of season.
The Development Officer will be supported initially by a Project Officer who will work with community groups helping them to enhance and upgrade current community assets including the Polysport, golf, show field, walks and riverside.
When the Buccleuch House project is nearing completion, NDCT will also be looking to recruit a Learning Centre Manager as well as someone to manage Bunks@Buccleuch.
All these posts play a vital role in driving the changes to improve what is already in place and ensuring that
Copshaw has a very bright future.
