Ardler Village Trust

The Ardler Village Trust (AVT) is an independent charity and limited company set up by a partnership that includes local residents, local churches, the Ardler Complex, Dundee City Council and Sanctuary Scotland Housing Association. By developing projects that tackle community, environmental and economic issues the AVT aims to respond to the particular needs of Ardler. 

It has 3 sub groups that reflect the AVTs areas of work. Membership of sub groups is open to all partners and community representatives in Ardler to ensure that work is co-ordinated and effective. The AVT enables local people to shape the future of Ardler in a sustainable, innovative and democratic way.

It's an exciting area of Dundee undergoing huge change as the 1960s tower blocks and four-storey flats are being replaced with quality houses based around a central social area. The 'Village' offers green space, a large community complex with library, new shops, football pitches, bowling club, water features and shortly multi sports and a youth shelter.

The trust is also recognised as a neighbourhood council by which Ardler residents can make decisions on services and planning issues with the support of Dundee City Council.


Aims of the Ardler Village Trust

· Involve residents in the decisions that effect Ardler

· Improve local services and amenities

· Ensure that all partners work is co-ordinated

· Foster economic activity and employment opportunities

· Promote social inclusion and community development

· Provide a forum for consultation on local services and development
