The Banffshire Partnership
The Banffshire Partnership has been formed by a number of key groups (voluntary, public and private) who signed up to a collective accord with the aim of contributing to the economic, social and environmental well- being of local communities by:
- Generating economic opportunities based on the sustainable use of culture, skills and the environment.
- Enabling and encouraging the continuing professional development of local people.
- Developing a long-term sustainable and integrated development plan for the area.
- Fostering cross-community organisation, participation and learning and links with other regional, national and European organisations.
This Accord acknowledges the intrinsic qualities and the economic, social and environmental development needs of the geographic/cultural region comprising the Community Council Areas of Aberchirder & Marnoch, Alvah & Forglen, Banff & MacDuff, Fordyce & Sandend, Gamrie & King Edward, Portsoy, Whitehills.
The Banffshire Partnership is rooted in and led by the communities which it serves. Directors either resident, or representing community groups based in, the area, are drawn from each of the eight community council areas.
Amongst the projects that the Banffshire Partnership has been assisting in development include:
- Princess Royal Sports and Community Trust - A Trust that promotes sporting activity and physical fitness in Banff, Macduff and surrounding areas.
- Whitehills Marina - A locally run Marina providing berths for visiting boats as well as additional facilities such as showers, toilets, Laundry and a Day Room.
- The Boyndie Trust - A community -run Crafts and Visitors Centre, including a work-based training centre.
- Dial-a-Bus - A Community Transport project providing regular service to over 70 clients throughout the area.
