A Vision For Brora
Brora and District Action Group (BaDAG) is a local voluntary Development Trust and a Scottish Charity (SC043968) representing Brora’s Community needs, working in partnership with a wide range of voluntary organisations (70) in Brora and East Sutherland.
Following public meetings with interested groups, culminating in a meeting of local representatives, together with Highland Council, NC500 and North Highland Initiative, it was agreed that BaDAG should take the lead on the project on behalf of the village. The BaDAG board decided that the most appropriate method of conducting such an audit and formulating a relevant plan was to engage professional consultants, independent of the village, to first provide an objective assessment and then to engage with and support the community in prioritising projects and opportunities in a Vision for Brora.
It was proposed that this work would comprise of three or four key projects that could be moved from “rhetoric to reality” in order to best benefit the village for residents and visitors. Alan Jones Associates were appointed to deliver the vision. The level of community response at 34% of all residents was the village’s most successful consultation ever.
