The Glendale Trust is working to develop and deliver projects based on the Glendale Community Survey Report which was carried out in 2011. This independent survey listed a significant number of priorities as identified by the local community which then formed the basis of the Glendale Growth Plan 1st Edition.
Having secured the funding for the provision of a Local Development Officer through Highlands and Islands Enterprise’s Community Account Management program the role of the project officer is to develop, organise and deliver these projects on behalf of the community of Glendale.
It is important that all projects undertaken by the Glendale Trust are financially sustainable and all can demonstrate majority community support.
All the projects follow a fixed process to ensure not only majority community support but that they meet the requirements of the various funding organisations details of how the projects are selected and developed can be found here – Project selection and development process
The Trust welcomes support and ideas from the whole community for any project we are always looking for volunteers to help deliver our projects.

- The Meanish Pier Project
