Making Falkland’s and Newton’s Future will give residents of the two villages the chance to discuss and decide upon the future of the area.

A team of architects, planners, artists, economists and engineers will be working with the communities to develop a vision for the future of Falkland and Newton of Falkland.

Workshops will be held in the community hall and old town hall in Falkland between March 20-22.

A detailed programme of events has been planned which will give local residents the chance to discuss buildings, open spaces, traffic and transport, local economy, opportunities and challenges facing the villages.

A final exhibition and report will then be delivered on April 18.

Rod Crawford, vice-chair of Falkland and Newton of Falkland Community Council, said: “In terms of involvement, we don’t want this just to be the ‘usual suspects’ – we want to hear Falkland’s and Newton’s unheard voices. We want to hear the voices of the whole community.”
