Second Community Survey

the old school site

Comann Eachdraidh Sgìre a’ Bhac (Back Historical Society) are in the process of further progressing a project for new premises on the Old Back School site, focused on the heritage of the district. The plans for this project are progressing steadily.

We previously asked for community feedback for this facility and have adjusted our proposals accordingly. What was evident was community need for wider re-development of the overall old school site, as well as other desires for facilities that could potentially be housed in this location.

Therefore we have framed this questionnaire to gather more information on this so we can develop a masterplan for the whole site. The more information we get from the community the more likely it will be that the masterplan will reflect the needs of the whole community.

1. Are you happy with the current condition of the old Back School site?

6. Considering the list from the previous question, please rank the top 5 functions (1 being most preferable) you would use / support most
