Ouseburn Trust Chief Officer, Chris Barnard, and Trustee, Dale Bolland, have been meeting with partners around the Valley to gather views and generate support for the strategy development process.

Current work on the strategy

Ouseburn Trust sub-groups are developing the themes and headings for sections of the Strategy - if you would like to get involved please come to the meeting of most interest to you or sign up to be on the group mailing list.

  • The Transport Working Group is making great progress on the Transport section. They meet on the first Tuesday of each month at 5pm at xsite architecture.
