The Langholm Alliance
The Langholm Alliance came together as an umbrella group of people and organisations with a drive to improve Langholm and its surrounding communities. The Alliance was structured to advance the aims of the area and its people, and to redevelop our part of the world based on advice from two Scottish Government Ministers and our local MP.
The Langholm Community Plan is the culmination of two years’ worth of research and community consultation. The priorities were developed following two well-attended public meetings held in the Buccleuch Centre in October 2018 and April 2019. A further community event was held on September 2019 to demonstrate the outcomes of the consultation and the route forward.
Meet the Team
Meet the people at Langholm Alliance who are striving to work alongside local people and bring regeneration to the town of Langholm.
Much of the built environment, infrastructure and land needed to create visitor attractions, and create future employment, is owned within the community and there is strong voluntary support to give Langholm a thriving, sustainable economy. Find out more about our town.
The Community Plan
Our vision for 2030 is for Langholm to be an even better place for people to stay, work, and visit. By 2030 Langholm will be a celebrated hub for small business and quality textiles, and a renowned visitor destination for its natural environment, its rich heritage, and its quality produce.
