Summary of Iolaire Centre Project Community Feedback Survey

This information has been compiled from responses to a widely-circulated online survey and from feedback forms completed at an Iolaire Centre Open Day held at Stornoway Town Hall on 27 February 2018.

Overall, we had 292 respondents which is just over 1.4% of the whole population of Lewis and Harris. The feedback on the project concept as initially proposed is overwhelmingly positive with 91.44% of respondents giving unqualified support for the principle and a similar amount (91.96%) for the vision and scope of the project (Questions 1 & 3).

The analysis of the 8.56% of respondents who do not support the project as initially proposed provided the Iolaire Working Group with critical feedback that any open consultation would hope for.

Below are the summary responses as taken from the survey.
