COUNCIL chiefs want your views on how Gaelic can be used more prominently in North Ayrshire.

The first Gaelic Language Plan was introduced in 2014 as a statutory requirement for councils with NAC receiving a Gaelic Grant of £67,000 from Scottish Government last year.

And the council say significant progress has been made in increasing the visibility of Gaelic, including their new logo, bilingual signage and cultural activities in schools.

This Language Plan (2014-2019) is now getting a refresh and the updated version will confirm the five-year plan up to 2024.

A consultation period, running from April 29-June 10, will give everyone a chance to look at the updated plans.

The Gaelic Language Plan is a statutory requirement for local authorities and last year the Council received a Gaelic Grant of £67,000 from the Scottish Government.

Cllr Louise McPhater, cabinet member for communities, said: “So far we have promoted the Gaelic language at a minimal cost and have maximised opportunities for external funding.

“The new plan is now ready and it’s really important that the public look over it and share their thoughts. We look forward to hearing their views.”
