Dunadd World Heritage status? questionnaire

Following the recent community meetings a questionnaire has been produced to continue to get feedback from the community, please follow link to access the questionnaire

The independent consultants Taylor Nisbet say that

The survey should take no more than 15 minutes of your time. It is open for responses until midday on Friday 5th July, and answers will remain anonymous.

As there were a number of people unable to attend the community consultations, we ask that you share this with members of the community so we can get as many views as possible. You will also notice that some questions are the same as you were asked at the events for this reason.

A816 Community Transport for Young People survey


Families who live in villages in rural Argyll and Bute do not always find it easy to access the whole variety of extracurricular activities on offer in the population centres.
This survey was commissioned by the Mid Argyll, Kintyre and the Islands Community Planning Group, following a Place Standards survey which showed that one of the villages on the A816 had a surprising number of responses to say that young people were disadvantaged in accessing extracurricular activities. “Investigate if Community Transport provides for children/families”

This would include anyone with a first aid qualification or medical background; chain saw certificate; 4 x 4 vehicle; knowledge of vulnerable residents or indeed any other skill / aptitude that would be important.
