CEX update – Growing Argyll and Bute

To function and thrive an area obviously needs enough people and skills to support its economy, and deliver the services and community resources its residents want. The national Census findings were issued recently, and show that Argyll and Bute’s population is still falling and ageing.

Growing the population continues to be one of the priorities of Argyll and Bute Council, and there are lots of good things happening for building a thriving future here.

We all contribute in some way to making Argyll and Bute a great place to live and work, and to helping it in effect beat competition for the people and skills we need. Please keep doing what you can to promote this amazing area as a great choice.

Argyll and Bute on screen

And talking of raising the profile of the area – have you ever been watching a film or TV series and suddenly recognised a familiar location?  The film industry in Argyll and Bute is going from strength to strength!  In this podcast, I catch up with Jen Skinner from Screen Argyll, a key creative industries driver based on the Isle of Tiree, along with Natasha Galbraith from our Economic Development team, who delivers the council’s Film in Argyll service, liaising with filmmakers and stakeholders on location filming across Argyll and Bute. You are welcome to listen in here.

Wishing you all a great weekend.
