    *This survey has now closed. Thank you to everyone who took part. We'll be presenting the results to the rebuilding working group and then preparing concept sketches for further input.*

    One of the key rebuilding steps is the need to prepare some basic concept sketches before we can progress to the next stage of having architect plans and more detailed documentation developed.

    Your input now will help create concept sketches which we can seek further community input on before finalising plans.

    Broadford's future direction

    We're in the early stages of developing the Broadford Structure Plan.

    Earlier this year, we called for people to join a Community Liaison Group to help with the development of the plan. We hit the streets and doorknocked homes and surveyed residents to ask some questions about their households, travel to work, service gaps and opportunities for Broadford.

    We're collating the results and will be back in touch once we're ready to start the next stage.
