The vision for Auchterarder and Aberuthven

“Community Action Plans are now increasingly recognised as an important resource for communities to have if they want to be successful in securing and directing funding for their priorities, and in making effective representation on their own behalf”

Our Community Action Plan (CAP) sets out the priorities for Auchterarder & Aberuthven over the next 5 years as determined by the community through a process of extensive community engagement carried out over 4 months from November 2021 to February 2022. Its been said that its one of the most important things to happen to our community in the last 50 years. 


The Community Action Plan contains

  • A summary of our Community Profile
  • Our main likes and dislikes as identified in our Community Views Survey
  • Our Vision for the future of the area
  • The main Themes and Priorities for action
  • Information on how to stay in touch and get involved.

The Community Action Plan is for the whole community and is jointly owned by all the organisations and individuals that took part in its preparation.  We will all be working together to ensure its implementation over the next 5 years
