Update 6 - Did you miss the recent community engagement events?

Post in Community Ownership by Tina Hartley
It was fantastic to see so many people at the drop-in sessions with SKS Scotland on Saturday, 27 August 2022. Feedback was so positive and great to have your ideas.

Any further comments?

Nicky, from SKS Scotland and Gillies, from John Gilbert Architects, were pleased to have the opportunity to talk to those able to make the two events on Saturday, 27 August 2022. Garve Coffee Morning saw 47 residents in attendance and the Achnasheen Community Energy event welcomed 17 residents. 105 people completed the recent community survey, the content of which was used to produce sketches and mood boards to aid discussion about development opportunities. We received some great feedback with lots of you liking the concepts proposed and also sharing your ideas for improvement.

Questions & Comments

Here's what others said...

In both sketches the access is the wrong place.

It is too close to the hall in one especially after the refurbishment in the other it is too close to the post office which will affect users.

It shoud be crossingg the centre of the current parking area on Stirling Drive adjacent to the hall.

What will be the uses of Community building besides cafe, toilets, retail and information boards. 

There is already a Community asset, The Hall in the village which caters for community needs, meetings, functions and activities.

Thanks for your comments Bob, great to see you at Garve Coffee Morning.  

Excellent points about access - all noted and I am sure you shared them with Nicky and Gilles, I will keep a note however and share them alongside other comments coming in.

As far as I am aware Bob, the only other uses coming in via the community survey for buildings are Bike Hub - so potential storage for bikes, maybe an area for repair and a facility to promote active travel linking up the community's priority around enhanced community path network.

Community Survey Results: -

"Cycling and walking hub – map, information and signposting 53.85% Bike / cycle parking 35.30% E-bike hire 32.00% Cycle hire / repair 25.00%"
