Constituting the group An initial draft constitution was written by RRT and then discussed with members of the GTA in May 2018. The group then had the opportunity to comment and amend the constitution at following GTA meetings. A constitution working group meeting took place in November 2018 to finalise the constitution with the help of newest GTA member and local resident and lawyer Keith Jenkins. In November 2018, the GTA’s constitution was signed by three core members, the chair, secretary and treasurer. A constituted group will provide the community with greater influence when communicating with the local authority and funding bodies. GTA’s next steps: We recommend that the GTA establishes an outreach and engagement methodology. This is to ensure that the steering committee is representative of the community so that improvements to the high street reflect the needs of the local community. The group will also need to create a vision and roadmap for the future and it will be crucial that the GTA secures funding to make their vision a reality. Finally, it is important that links between steering groups members and influential local stakeholders such as the local authority, local councillors and local community leaders from schools and cultural organisations are created and sustained. The RRT is well placed to act as a node to keep these links active.
