Perth and Kinross Council Wish List
On top of the projects outlined BAM Nuttall is also committed to delivering projects on Perth and Kinross Community Benefits Wish List.
These are projects that have been identified by local communities as priorities in helping to improve their local environment or deliver new community development based activity.
The projects will be considered over the course of the whole project.
Everyone has something to offer
Cross Tay Link Road reflects the thinking behind Perth and Kinross Council’s new community development framework, ‘The Perth & Kinross Offer’
It sets out how Perth & Kinross Council plans to involve staff and communities working together to make life better for everyone living in the area.
Every day across Perth and Kinross individuals and community groups are doing their bit to help make this a better place for everyone to live. From clearing snow from an elderly neighbour’s footpath, to picking up litter. From volunteering to coach youth football, to buying from a local independent business.
Big or small, all of these actions make a difference.
The same is true of the Council’s staff. The Perth & Kinross Offer recognises what can happen and achieved if everyone works together every day.
The framework document sets out the purpose of the ‘Offer’ and how it will be embedded in the organisational culture for council staff, and the role local residents, businesses, elected members and community planning partners have to play in making it a reality.
Find out more details of the ways Council staff, partners and community members are already putting the ‘Offer’ into action.
