Blairgowrie and Rattray Development Trust

Blairgowrie & Rattray Development Trust has a number of roles within your community, working alongside local people, community groups, businesses and the local authority - and helping to create a thriving and attractive town, with a strong sense of community and identity, appealing to those who live, work and visit.

Our primary activity is the coordination of the activities outlined in the latest Community Action Plan (CAP) or as we refer to it - the Blairgowrie & Rattray Initiative.

Blairgowrie and Rattray Development Trust Ltd is managed by volunteer trustees and two part-time staff funded by the Scottish Government - Strengthening Communities Programme

One Voice is an integral part of the Trust run by volunteers who manage the popular Booklore shop, where they also provide information to all-comers about the many attractions in the local area

The Heat Project is an initiative of the Trust to tackle climate change by reducing the carbon dioxide emissions of the communities in Blairgowrie, Rattray and the Glens

Role of the Trust

The Trust works alongside local people, community groups, business and the local authority, all with the aim of promoting and achieving outcomes including the following:

  • Encouraging more people live, work and spend in the town
  • For Blairgowrie and Rattray to be recognised and renowned for its attractive public spaces, accessibility and conscientious environmental approach
  • Increased local activities to promote sustainable use of natural resources
  • More community involvement - acting as one towards common purposes
  • Wide recognition of the community as a centre for arts, crafts, leisure, and outdoor pursuits
  • Promotion to encourage more people choose to visit all year-round
  • Highlighting the history and culture of the local area so it becomes widely known to residents, and visitors alike
