Preliminary results from the recent community survey indicate strong support for a (1) a bunkhouse, (2) tourist and heritage information centre and (3) a broadband access terminal. Support for a café is evenly split between those who think that is very important and those who do not support a cafe because of competition with local businesses. There is little support for either office or retail space.
In Question 20, respondents were asked to rank 9 potential uses. The survey is now closed and the overall ranking of uses is as follows:
- Low Cost Bunkhouse Accommodation
- Tourist and Heritage Information Space
- Toilets and Shower Facilities
- Broadband Access Terminal
- Self-catering Kitchen Facilities
- Communal Space
- Small Retail Provision
- Office Space
Our consultants, Alan Jones Associates, will be analysing the full survey results for the Business Plan which should be completed in the next few weeks.
