Gatehouse Development Initiative

The Gatehouse Development Initiative

The Gatehouse Development Initiative exists for the benefit of the Gatehouse Community and provides a framework for the development of projects within the community.


Originally formed by the Community Council as a fundraising arm, it was converted to a charitable company which brought additional benefits in fundraising powers and legal protection for members.  The Initiative continues to work closely with the Community Council.


Amongst a range of benefits, the GDI can save smaller projects the need to be formally established in their own right, can provide support with fundraising, provide insurance, indemnity cover and public liability cover, and provide book-keeping/accountancy services.


Meetings are open to all and membership of the GDI to all Gatehouse residents.  New members and suggestions for new projects are always welcome - meetings are friendly and informal.


Many community groups are represented at meetings which provide for a useful exchange of ideas, and for reporting on the progress of current projects. Most projects are run by project managers who are often the initiator of an idea and who may have their own project team.

Meetings are held on the last Wednesday of every other month in the Community Centre at 7.30pm: January, March, May, July, September and November.
