JOIN THE ARRAN DEVELOPMENT TRUST

WHY JOIN?

If you value Health and Social Care, Education, Retail, Leisure, a vibrant Arran community and economy, then support our drive for affordable housing:

THE PROBLEM:

  • House Prices on Arran are 40% above house prices in the rest of North Ayrshire.
  • Rented property on Arran is priced 40% above North Ayrshire and is rarely available.
  • Price and availability make it difficult to retain or attract people to live and work on Arran.

THE EFFECTS:

  • Many people living and working on Arran in substandard and temporary accommodation, causing real hardship.
  • There are critical labour shortages in all sectors from health & social care to tourism. These shortages are straining essential services and business growth.
  • We are unable to house our local workforce who are forced to leave causing depopulation and a real loss of potential to our Island.
  • A decreasing young population puts pressure on the viability of our schools which are at the heart of our communities.

WHAT CAN BE DONE:

Build affordable houses for rent and offer self - build plots for residents and people coming to work on the Island.

To get started, an Arran Development Trust application to build 43 affordable houses with 14 self - build plots is in process.
We have passed the first two hurdles, but we will only succeed if the ADT can demonstrate strong community support.

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

Become a member of the Arran Development Trust.  Support our goals and objectives.  Stay informed with monthly updates.  Participate in the AGM and stand for office if you wish. Above all, register your support and help to maintain and develop our Island community.
