Coldstream Community Action Plan

Since March 2016 we have been working on developing a new Community Action Plan for the community of Coldstream, in the Scottish Borders.  The plan is being designed to provide a researched, up-to-date understanding of Coldstream, and to propose appropriate actions for improvement and regeneration within six broad fields: Tourism, Retail, Industry, Young Families, the Elderly and Community Capacity.

Vibrant Community

Coldstream has a vibrant community and fascinating history, with over 60 community groups.

The town is roughly midway in journey time between Edinburgh and Newcastle upon Tyne and on one of only five arterial roads crossing the length of the Scottish-English border. Coldstream is centre to a surrounding agriculturally fertile and historic region. Following doscussions in 2016, Coldstream Community Trust and Coldstream and District Community Council, formed a steering group. With four representatives from each committee, the group guided the production of a new new community action plan, for which, we have been engaged.
