A Little Bit About Us

The Stranraer Development Trust was formed by a group of people who were concerned about the downturn of the town.  The Trust received charitable status in February 2016 as a SCIO (Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation).  The primary aims of the Trust are to achieve sustainable regeneration of the community of Stranraer addressing a range of economic, social, environmental and cultural issues.  It will take forward projects that will increase opportunities, improve the attractiveness of the town, attract more visitors and revive the lost sense of pride in the town and what it has to offer.

Being able to demonstrate that we have the support of the local community by having as many members as possible is very important to show potential funders that we have your backing.

Whatever we do and whatever we achieve, we must do it together. Not for any one person or group or individual business but for the good of the town of Stranraer today, tomorrow and long into the future
