The Isle of Canna Community Development Trust’s vision is for sustainable demographic growth supported by good employment opportunities, good services and facilities and affordable housing.
Further amenity growth is a major aim of the Canna community and facilities such as a community hall and arts centre are a must for the future. The community feel that ownership of its own assets are a fundamental requirement of community empowerment and will continue to pursue community asset ownership wherever or whenever it becomes a possibility. The community support the current Scottish Government proposals for greater community empowerment and with membership of the Development Trusts Association Scotland and Community Land Scotland see this as a steady progression for Canna where a partnership can exist between the Community and the NTS thus ensuring growth within Conservation objectives and guidelines, making Canna an exceptional place not just to visit but to live in.
