Bushmills Community Choices project open

Members of the community in Bushmills are invited to get involved with a new project to enhance the local area.

The Bushmills Community Choices, a participatory budgeting initiative, will identify and develop community-led ideas.

It will be co-designed by groups and individuals from the village itself and is part of a new scheme delivered by Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, in partnership with the Northern Area Community Network.

A drop-in conversation will take place on Thursday, June 16, 2pm – 7pm in Bushmills Community Centre to share information on the project and how you can get involved and submit your bid form.

The closing date for bids is September 9 with a community voting event to be held at the end of September.

Mayor Councillor Richard Holmes, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the local community in Bushmills and the surrounding area to make a positive difference. If you have been thinking about a concept to improve village life now is your chance to share it with others and make it a reality. We’re looking for participants of all ages to get involved from Primary Six pupils and upwards – please come along to our information session to find out more.”

Breige Conway, Manager for Northern Area Community Network (NACN) said: “This is a very exciting time for the village of Bushmills. It’s the first time trying this way of working to encourage as much participation as possible. The process is allowing everyone a chance to shape and plan the future for the community and to work with statutory organisations to take the ideas forward.”

Local community members and groups will have the opportunity to submit project ideas to help enhance the village of Bushmills and its neighbouring areas through the new ‘Bushmills Community Choices’ project
