Ballintoy Village Forum could be the key to successful Community Engagement

30 10 2011

SDLP Ballycastle Cllr Donal Cunningham has praised the local groups who have come together to form the Ballintoy Village Forum.

Speaking after a meeting with local residents, he said: “A Village Plan for Ballintoy had been produced following extensive and detailed community consultation and research, it contained a collective vision of how people who live in, work and visit Ballintoy would like to see their village improve and develop

The Village Forum will aim to progress the proposals identified in the Village Plan to bid for funding from the second stage of the North East Rural Development Programme for Village Renewal

“ I would encourage anyone with an interest in the village whether resident or otherwise, to support the community initiatives, and to get involved in progressing the projects so that they can work to improve the quality of village life. I also hope that the Village Forum will act as a link between the Ballintoy Community and the Council and help improve Community Engagement”
