Community Vision

Chinley, Buxworth and Brownside Feasibility Study to Assess the Needs of the Community

It has been ten years since the Parish Plan and in light of this Chinley, Buxworth and Brownside Community Association, in partnership with the Parish Council, are carrying out a feasibility study to assess the current needs of the local community.

The study is looking at the community services and leisure activities currently available within the local area with the aim of finding out how these might be improved or expanded.

This involves asking community members what services and activities they would like to be able to access. The study is also taking into account services provided by other organisations operating in the area. Such organisations have been invited to contribute and offer their own points of view in terms of their particular needs.

The Community Association is in the process of carrying out an extensive community consultation covering the whole of the Chinley, Buxworth and Brownside Parish.

The ideas and needs of local people and voluntary groups will inform a new Community Association Action Plan, through which the Association will endeavour to develop new activities, groups and, if appropriate, facilities.
