East Kintyre Local Development PlanOpen Day

On 9 November 2019, the Carradale Village Hall hosted the EK Community Open Day. A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone for making the Open Day such a success!


We were following up on our hugely successful Visitors and Residents Survey, and asking those attending about ideas for developing our area and making it more sustainable.

The event, jointly sponsored by Carradale Community Trust and East Kintyre Community Council presented a number of displays with options for the future development of a shop/hub project and our harbour. Other displays covered our heritage and sought to promote local businesses. Fish Farm operators MOWI displayed their plans for the expansion of their Carradale operation, while SSE representatives were able to advise those attending of upcoming developments in the area. Members of the recently established East Kintyre Renewable Energy Group were kept busy answering questions about their intentions to secure a degree of community shared ownership in current and future wind farm developments, which it is hoped will help finance the legacy projects identified throughout this planning process.

Visitor & Residents Survey

Throughout the Summer of 2019, the Carradale Community Trust, East Kintyre Community Council and Project Perspectives have been surveying visitors and residents to discover their likes and dislikes as well as their aspirations for the future of our communities.

From our 852 responses (212 of them from residents), we now can begin to shape a plan for our development. Have a quick look at the Survey Summary and - if you have time - the full Visitor and Residents Survey Report?

Please feel free to contact any of us with feedback or additional information that might help with our ongoing planning!
