In early 2010, Argyll and Bute Council appointed Ekos, a leading independent UK consultancy specialising in economic and social development, to carry out socio-economic baseline reports and perception surveys for each of the 5 towns in the CHORD programme.
The studies were carried out throughout 2010, and the final reports are now available.
The socio-economic baselines provide an overview of each area, looking at population, employment base, business base, claimant count (Job Seekers Allowance), property base etc.
The perception studies were carried out with a range of residents, businesses and visitors. The idea behind these surveys is to obtain a baseline position for each town, so that changes in future public perception can be measured.
