This aims to ‘further develop the community vision and develop possible projects’ for targeted investment in each area and stimulate the private sector.

DMBC officer Jonathan Clark said: “There is currently no identified funding to implement projects in these three areas, the aspiration is the plans will be a vehicle to help lobby and secure future resources by articulating a clear vision and projects with widespread support.

“Therefore managing expectations around this and being pragmatic and realistic will be important.”
