Brixham Future's Business Plan is `open` for public comment and will close on the 27th of September. Please click on the following link to view the business plan.
Brixham Future is currently a working group of Brixham Town Council but will eventually become a Community Interest Company (CIC).
As was the case when the original group was formed making the arrangements for the new company is taking a little time to resolve but the company will broadly be based on the agreement reached with Brixham Town Council in June 2015 which recognises that BTC is the lead organisation in regeneration in the community and that all projects are to be agreed between the parties and other agencies and partners where necessary.
Even in the short period since this agreement was reached Brixham Future has already delivered a fully costed scheme for the provision of Solar Powered Belly Bins in Brixham, which BTC resolved to support at full council on 22nd October 2015.
A trial period commences on Monday 27th June which Brixham Town Council and Brixham Future will be monitoring closely with a view to entering into negotiations for the retention and expansion of the scheme, which it is anticipated will have significant environmental impact on our community.
The delivery of the project augurs well as the group works on its plans to become a CIC.
In March 2016 the group led the SPRING CLEAN FOR THE QUEEN day. The event was a successful collaboration with Brixham Chamber of Commerce, Brixham Community Partnership, Brixham Town Council and Pride in Brixham and many individuals and businesses also lent their assistance on the day.
The present membership are all volunteer townspeople with a wide variety of backgrounds, including tourism, fundraising, retail, engineering, project management and community business managements and consists of John Brennan, Sara Caselton-Bone, Keith Dodd, Janet Howard, Nigel Makin and Robert Fitzmaurice.
Additional interest has been received from other parties who want to lend their assistance to the regeneration work in our community.
The group will continue with its task of prioritising, evaluating and recommending regenerational and development ideas to the Town Council and other partners as well as being free to develop and deliver projects of their own under the joint BF/BTC agreement.
Three Town Councillors and invited guests attend each of the sessions which at this stage are all workshops, but a new format is being discussed for public meetings and news will follow on this subject at a later date.
