West Linton: A community survey to help shape the village’s future

The 2023 Community Survey can be completed by anyone 12 years of age and older and elementary school age children can participate.

The online tool, launched about a week ago, is part of West Linton Community Council (WLCC)’s engagement with the Scottish Borders Council’s Placement Scheme.

WLCC members should put in some effort and try to get out to all of the village clubs and associations to make sure the survey reaches as many people as possible.

Speaking Monday evening, WLCC member Lindsay Mann said, “We could provide a hard copy of the survey but it’s best to submit it on an iPad.”

On the site is a map to confirm the boundaries of West Linton.

A statement on the editorial page reads: “Your community council is keen to solicit your views and opinions on living here – and the more participants, the better we will get an understanding of the issues that need to be addressed.

“We are interested in everyone’s opinion. This survey will inform future local planning by the Scottish Borders Council and other partners such as the NHS.

Please answer the questions based on your personal opinions and behaviors.

Your answers to the survey will be strictly confidential and data from this research will only be reported in aggregate form.

Your information will be encrypted and kept confidential.

The survey determines how long people have lived in the village and how long they intend to stay with a series of five emojis to designate the “enjoyment level” of the village.

The list of statements about village issues asks for five responses each, from very satisfied to not at all satisfied.

The issues are: public transportation; Community; identification; housing; moving around; amenities; services; safety; traffic and parking; village effect green spaces; resident effect maintenance; play and recreation. and belonging.

Participants are then asked to choose three issues to focus on.

In addition to multiple choice answers, there is an opportunity to expand on all problems with boxes for further explanation.

There is a question about the possibility of a West Linton Community Trust and the survey asks for opinions on the ideas generated at last year’s meeting.
