Our Mission is to develop the physical, economic, cultural and human assets of Neilston:
by ensuring that Neilston is a successful, sustainable, well planned and well connected small town being transformed by local people in collaboration with relevant agencies.
by offering Neilston as a model for small town regeneration through the quality of its physical transformation, our commitment to sustainable development and our approach to community involvement and community asset development.
The work of NDT is multi-faceted and shaped by local need and opportunity. We have identified three key strategic areas that will inform our activity:
Strategic Priority 1 – People: A thriving, active, informed and engaged local community
