Ettrick and Yarrow Community Development Company - Edinburgh & South East (Lothian, Borders)

The Development Company pursues a wide range of projects that can help us meet our Main Objectives - promoting the Ettrick and Yarrow Valleys as a place to live, work and visit.Our projects are therefore aimed at increasing visitor numbers (creating and promoting walking and cycling routes, improving signage and visitor information), pursuing opportunities for affordable housing and small-scale business premises (including developing redundant and under-used buildings), improving communications (especially mobile phone and broadband coverage) and exploring opportunities for Community owned renewable energy schemes.We liaise with the local tourism group (which was set up by the 'Revitalising the Ettrick and Yarrow Valleys' project, our predecessor organisation) and the Community Council to maximise the effectiveness of all three bodies.
