Welcome to Thornhill Futures Group.
The Group was launched on 1 March 2021 with residents from all walks of life coming together to
prepare a vision for the future of Thornhill. Our focus for 2022 is to prepare a Local Place Plan for our
village. A Local Place Plan must be community-led and set out proposals for the development and
use of land.

Our Purpose:
We aim to capture the views of the entire community to identify the local needs and aspirations of
residents and businesses and envisage a sustainable future beyond the pandemic.

How we’re doing this:
We undertook a Questionnaire in April 2021 and followed up the responses from the community
with the Loan Survey in October. Results of both can be found in the updates.
We had planned a Thornhill Futures Event for March to seek the views of the community on ideas
and progress to date. However, with Covid levels rising it had to be postponed. The intention is to
now consult with groups and individuals over the summer and to hold an Open day in early Autumn
so that proposals and options can be put to the wider community for comment.
We’ve been working with Stirling Council, neighbouring communities and national bodies like
Development Trusts Scotland (DTAS), Scottish Land Fund (SLF) for information, advice and

Proposals and Making Decisions:
Concerns and ideas from residents will be considered along with the information acquired as above
to identify a comprehensive range of possible actions and then give everyone a chance to shape the
future priorities of the community.

Notes from Thornhill Futures Group meetings and other updates will be posted regularly on the Futures Updates blog page so you can follow our progress.
