Rural Scotland Post Brexit

Online questionnaire: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/RuralBrexit

Over the last few weeks, Scottish Rural Action (SRA) has engaged in discussions the length and breadth of Scotland on the potential impact of Brexit for rural communities. More events are planned for October and SRA are keen that people from local communities come along and join the conversation, ensuring their views and concerns form part of their report to the Scottish Rural Parliament. Details of dates and locations will be published as events are confirmed.

How can you get involved?

In assessing the impact of Brexit on our rural communities, we’re keen to hear what you feel are the greatest opportunities and challenges as a result of the UK leaving the European Union. We’d like you to share your thoughts on what rural policy in Scotland should look like post Brexit. We need your help to get this right. If you are unable to attend one of these events and would like to contribute to the discussion, please complete our online questionnaire at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/TLW738B Responses to the questionnaire will also be used to help us gather information so please encourage your friends, neighbours and colleagues in your local community to complete it too.

You can also join our conversation on Brexit by sharing your views via:

Why are my views important?

SRA will be presenting findings from all of our engagement activity to the Scottish Rural Parliament this November. The outcome of this will subsequently be used to influence Scottish Government policy and to shape a joint statement that will be used by The Scottish Government, SRA, and other UK rural organisations to advocate for rural communities at a national level.

Make sure your voice is heard – join the conversation.

    Our greatest handicap is the lack of high speed broadband. I understand that the Scottish Government is promising 100% coverage by 2021. Yet my response from Open Reach to my MSP offers no hope. We are really struggling to keep several businesses of our own and of our neighbours working. This must be a priority for Rural Scotland – we are becoming second rate citizens. When I stay in remote rural locations in Europe broadband speeds are hugely superior.
    Please can you suggest how we might progress this, please?
