Welcome to Thornhill Futures Group

What is Thornhill Futures Group?

The Futures 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 2023 is to move to Phase 2 of preparing a Local Place Plan for our village.

“Local Place Plans are community-led plans setting out proposals for the development and use of land. Introduced by the Planning (Scotland) Act 2019, these plans will set out a community’s aspirations for its future development.
Once completed and then registered by the planning authority, they are to be taken into account in the preparation of the relevant local development plan”

Scottish Government Planning Circular 1/2022: Local Place Plans

How we’re doing this:

People in Thornhill responded very fully to a questionnaire sent out in April
2021. However, the world has moved on since then and while the key ideas
which emerged then may still be valid, we need to check in with each other to refresh what has been done so far.
