A shared vision for langholm

The Langholm Alliance is an umbrella community organisation approved by Scottish ministers to oversee the economic regeneration of our town by 2030.

Located in the Borders of Scotland, on one of the main routes linking the north of England to Edinburgh (A7), Langholm is an historic burgh of Dumfries and Galloway. Just a short drive from Carlisle and the M74 motorway which connects with the M6, Langholm is ideally located to attract visitors and inward investment from both the north and south of the UK.

The Muckle Toon, as it is known locally, is surrounded by stunning countryside, rolling hills, rivers and forests and is home to some of Scotland’s best-loved wildlife including red squirrels and hen harriers. The wider community also has a rich history and heritage, as the birthplace of engineer Thomas Telford and poet Hugh MacDiarmid, the adopted home of the first man on the moon Neil Armstrong, and the beating heart of Scotland’s textiles industry for centuries.

The Community Action Plan

We’re excited to be sharing our town’s vision for 2030. Developed by the Langholm community, this is the culmination of two years’ research and local consultation led by The Langholm Alliance Steering Group and taking into consideration the priorities of the population. This is a unique and rare opportunity to create an ambitious, long-term plan for a town that is well placed to lead the way for small town regeneration in Scotland, with support from the Scottish Government, South of Scotland Enterprise, Dumfries and Galloway Council and other key partners.
