Rosneath Peninsula West Community Development Trust

The RPW CDT was officially launched on November 6th, 2010. We are an independent charity set up to encourage and enable individuals and small groups resident in the Peninsula and  to run projects for the benefit of all sectors of our diverse community. We were set up under auspices of Cove and Kilcreggan Community Council and are a registered charity with 15 directors who have been specifically chosen to represent a cross section of our community.


The Trust has its own website, here.

Unveiling of Community Action Plan

The Board of Rosneath Peninsula West Community Development Trust to unveil the Community Action Plan.

This April is a significant milestone for the Development Trust as it was on 27th April 2010 that the Board held its first meeting. On Saturday May 7th at 2pm in the Burgh Hall, they will deliver the Community Action Plan to which we have all been contributing over the last six months. Project Groups have already started to consider how some of the projects emerging from the surveys and public meetings might be brought to fruition. The creation of the Community Action Plan was only achieved through the assistance of Stephen Singer and his colleagues at Community Links Scotland. Their participation was funded by grants from Voluntary Action Fund, Argyll and Islands LEADER programme, Dunbritton Housing Association, Community Enterprise in Scotland, the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland, the Big Lottery Fund, and Community Energy Scotland. It’s easier to list these supporters than it is to spend the hours completing and lobbying through the applications. Enormous thanks are due to Arlene Cullum, one of the Trust’s Vice-Conveners, who spent many weeks engaged on this task. Without her, the Community Action Plan would never have come into being, so the Board hopes there is a large turnout on Saturday 7th May to see the results of her, and your, efforts.


Alongside the presentation of the Community Action Plan, there will be five-a-side football in the Church Hall grounds, and the Board will be giving an update on the role of the Carbon and Energy Reduction Officer. She, or he, will be employed to give energy efficiency advice to every household in the community. This is part of our co-operation with the Climate Challenge Fund which is supporting the pre-development investigation on our Community Wind Power project.


The Glasgow Institute of Architects, in conjunction with the Development Trust, is holding an architectural competition on the redesign of Kilcreggan Village centre. This prestigious event will take place through the summer and will include various events designed to ascertain the views of the community on the emerging plans. The final exhibition and prizegiving will be held in the Burgh Hall in August.


The Development Trust has come a long way in just a year and your support has been very much appreciated. Please come along on Saturday May 7th to participate in the next step of the journey.
