Calderwood is a rural agrarian community situated in the southwestern section of St. Ann. Calderwood is approximately 11 km away from the town of Claremont and 61km away from the parish capital, St. Ann’s Bay. It is also located approximately 24km away from Brown’s Town. The community has an approximate population of 20,000 with an average household size of 5 persons (community count – May 2010). Calderwood is comprised of twelve districts namely Barbary Hill, Calderwood, Down Lodge, Eight Miles, Glasgow Lodge, Grants Mountain, Hessen Castle, Murray Mountain, Nine Miles, Prickley Pole, Stepney and Sterling.
The Calderwood Community Priority Plan outlines the issues related to the community as well as its goals and objectives as expressed by the members of the community. The actions planned for the attainment of these goals will be guided by proper implementation. Participatory Learning and Action (PLA) tools were utilized for the gathering of data and formulation of this plan. PLA was also critical for decision making.
The process facilitated broad community participation and residents participated in the documentation of the community’s vision and mission, problem identification and prioritization. Community initiatives were highlighted as well as strategies that can be used to address the development challenges that were identified. A SWOT Analysis was conducted which highlighted the community’s strengths and weaknesses as well as its opportunities and threats. These issues/challenges were mostly related to health and environment (unhealthy environment, poor water supply), physical infrastructure (poor road condition, no facility for skills training and recreation) and socio-economic challenges (need for improved education and skills training, unemployment).
Outlined in the Community Priority Plan are the top five priorities. These are:
1. Poor water supply
2. No Community Centre
3. Education and Training
4. Unemployment
5. Unhealthy environment
