Perth & Kinross Council publishes Gaelic Language Plan 2018-2023

Perth & Kinross Council has published its second Gaelic Language Plan, setting out the Council's aims and ambitions for Gaelic over the next five years (2018 to 2023), and how these will be achieved.

The first Gaelic Language Plan for Perth and Kinross was passed by Full Council in 2012. The renewed and refreshed Gaelic Language Plan sets out the Council's ongoing work to develop Gaelic over the next five years in the community, education, the workplace, the home and within arts, media, heritage and tourism.

The Council has a legal obligation to produce a GLP which seeks to demonstrate its commitment to Gaelic and increase awareness and usage of the language in the area.

Perth & Kinross Council Leader, Councillor Murray Lyle said: "Perth & Kinross Council is delighted to be able to publish its second Gaelic Language Plan as our commitment to securing the future of the language and culture in our communities.

We recognise the important contribution Gaelic has made to our past, our history and our living culture, and we will continue to support this through our Gaelic Language Plan."

The Gaelic Language Plan 2018-2023 can now be viewed online, and will also be available shortly in local libraries.
