Jun 5, 2024

Your place, your plan: Come along to our ‘place plan pop up’ and complete our survey to help shape the future of Broadford and Strath.

How would you like to see our community land and buildings developed? What should be community priorities for the next 10 years? Drop in to our ‘Place Plan Pop-Up’ and share your ideas. You can also share views via our online survey.

What’s happening?

We are inviting everyone’s views about our places and our community. Pop in to see displays, contribute your ideas and have a chat with community representatives. All ages are welcome and there will be plenty of tea and cake too!

We’d like your ideas and opinions on five key themes: Community life, Getting about, Outdoors, nature & heritage; Our homes; and Organising ourselves. We’ll also have information about some of the current and proposed plans for our area for you to comment on. On some of the days we’ll have ‘guest slots’ with people representing local projects such as South Skye Community Campus, Lochalsh & Skye Housing Association and the Paths for People project. Follow our Facebook page for updates.

We have also launched an online survey for people unable to attend the drop in sessions or who prefer to respond online. Survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LWVB5YK

What’s a Local Place Plan?

Local Place Plans (LPPs) are community-led plans setting out proposals for the development and use of land. Broadford & Strath Community Council and Broadford and Strath Community Company are coordinating the LPP for our area, supported by and other community representatives.

The Scottish Government has introduced LPPs as part of its wider work on planning reform. This reform includes steps to improve community engagement and build public trust in planning matters in our local area. LPPs are a way for local communities to think about how to make their place better, to agree priorities, and to work with others, including public bodies, to take action for change.

Once registered by the planning authority, LPPs must be considered in the preparation of the relevant local development plan.

For more detail on LPPs see our recent news item, Local Place Plan for Broadford and Strath.

Thank you

This work has been funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund with match funding from Broadford and Strath Community Company.

Thank you to Love From Skye for use of the space and to our community partners for taking part.
