Most of you will remember the Island Futures Charrette workshops that took place last year, facilitated by Ironside Farrar Ltd. A variety of public meetings and workshops were carried out and attended by the community who were encouraged to input into the process.
The results from the Charrette were presented to The Trust in the form of a Socio-Economic Baseline Study and a Strategy Report. In October of 2016, Tiree Trust held a public meeting to present the key information collated from the reports. Unfortunately, this meeting wasn’t well attended and it was felt that we should re arrange the meeting in order to give the community another chance to learn about the key results from the Charrette process and what the ‘next steps’ would be in relation to the recommendations.
The second public meeting will be taking place on Wednesday the 22nd of March at 7:30pm in An Talla and we would urge as many people as possible to come along.

Tiree Community Development Trust recently presented the final Socio Economic Study and Strategy Report, which were the two main outputs from the work carried out by Ironside Farrar Ltd, the consultancy firm employed to deliver the Charrette for the Trust. You can see the two documents below:

Last weekend, the Charrette process in Tiree came to an end with two days of discussions and workshops.
The community engagement event was hosted by The Trust and facilitated by Ironside Farrar. Lots of meaningful conversation was had about our future as an island community and the events were well attended by a wide range of community groups, businesses, external agencies and residents.
However, the work is not over yet! If you have not already done so, we are asking all residents, business owners, second home owners and non-residents (with a Tiree connection) to complete a survey. Online surveys are available on the following links. The Trust is particularly keen to hear from people who used to live on Tiree.
