Community Projects

We want to hear about potential plans and projects for your communities. Occasionally, TDC will receive planning applications for housing in and around your communities which have potential to come with financial contributions. When this happens, organisations and local councils need to have projects that are ready to go. Please have a look through our open space/built facility guidance and then complete the community projects suggestion form which can be stored by the Economic Development Team at TDC. If you have any questions, please email
