How We Started

The local community often finds that it is marginalised and is on the boundary of local and national government initiatives. We have however learnt to come together in order to have our voice heard, and are constantly seeking ways to improve the quality of life for all in terms of employment, social and leisure facilities. One of the results of this was the creation of the MCDC as a vehicle to create and develop opportunities for inward investment and development for the benefit of local residents.

What We Do

Our first project was the purchase of land and the creation of a petrol station. From these small beginnings, our activities have expanded rapidly, and amongst the projects being actively looked at are: · The construction of a marina · The construction of a sawmill with adjoining workshops and craft units. · Small, community controlled wind farms · Provision of small factory units · Provision of affordable housing · Increased opportunities for employment, particularly for the young.
