Your council is looking for the views of the people who live in Argyll and Bute to help shape the future of the area – with public transport, housing, recreation and access to jobs among the topics for input via the Place Standard Tool on-line questionnaire.

The Place Standard Tool has been developed by the Scottish Government, NHS Scotland and Architecture and Design Scotland as a way of assessing places.

Argyll and Bute Council is using it to gather information that will help develop economic and community initiatives, and the area’s local development plan. The local development plan sets out how land is used to support the quality of life and economy of Argyll and Bute.

The Call for Ideas - a second and closely-related online survey – focuses on more specific land use matters relating for example to towns and villages and industrial business sites.

Responses to this questionnaire will contribute specifically to the local development plan,

Both questionnaires run until 21 April 2017. You can complete them by following the links on the council website - https://www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/forms/how-good-your-place and https://www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/consultations/call-ideas

The process and timetable for creating the next Local Development Plan is set out in the recently updated Development Plan Scheme which can be found on the Council’s website https://www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/sites/default/files/approved_dps_180117_document_only.pdf
