Culbokie Community Trust
March 2019 New newsletter and updated website
CCT have updated their newsletter to a very attractive format using Mailchimp, and we post these in full under News / Culbokie CT newsletter. The newsletter is sent regularly to all full and associate members of CCT; full membership is limited to those living in specified postcode districts close to Culbokie, but others living further afield are welcomed as Associate Members. Both classes of membership are free, and donations are welcomed. Membership and donation forms can be downloaded from the Membership page of CCT's updated website, at www.culbokiect.org , which among lots of interesting stuff has an excellent set of photos of the recent 'Rabbie Burns' orienteering event in Culbokie Woods.
January 2019 Glascairn developments
Open space at Glascairn - Consultation Results
Many thanks to everyone who responded to our consultation on the design of the open space at Glascairn at the end of last year. You can now read our report <http://www.culbokiect.org/index.asp?pageid=689927> on what you said and our responses to your comments.
Glascairn Community Project Update
In December, Tulloch Homes submitted two overlapping planning applications in close liaison with CCT. The first is for full planning consent for their housing (33 single storey units including 8 affordable units) and related infrastructure, including the SUDS basin and the community open space. The second application has been submitted on behalf of CCT for 'planning in principle' for the community building and 6 community houses along with the SUDS basin and open space. You can find the applications at https://wam.highland.gov.uk/wam/ - search for 18/05808/FUL and 18/05806/PIP to see the two applications. You can make your own comments about the applications which must be submitted by 25th Jan. CCT Directors are pleased with the proposals which we believe will make a positive contribution to the village and we will be writing a letter to support the Tulloch application.
During 2020 CCT expect Tulloch Homes to hand over the fully formed, but basic, landscaped open space. Drawing on community views submitted during the open space consultation (see above), CCT plans to appoint its own design team to develop 'enhanced' proposals for the open space and the community will be consulted as these plans progress.
