Calling rural Scotland – what should be discussed at our first ever Rural Parliament?

People who live and work in rural Scotland are this week being invited to set the agenda for Scotland’s first Rural Parliament, which will take place in Oban, Argyll & the Islands in November this year.

Scottish Rural Action, the body that is organising the Rural Parliament, is inviting everyone with an interest in rural issues to contribute their ideas for the themes that should be debated at the event, and the challenges and practical solutions that the Parliament should be addressing.

Research on rural issues indicates ten topics which may be considered priorities, including transport, broadband, housing, deliveries, community confidence and changing populations. The big question is, which of these do you think are the most important for the Scottish Rural Parliament to consider?

You can submit your answers using the online survey:
