Presentation by Page and Park

Consider presentation from Page & Park of the requested electronic virtual tour to be used as part of the consultation process.

Minutes:

The Chairman welcomed Karen Nugent, Catriona MacDonald and David Wyllie from Page and Park to the meeting.  Karen Nugent led the presentation and gave a run through of the proposed virtual tour of the building and advised that captions still had to be added.  There followed a detailed discussion of how the digital presentation could be amended to make it as clear as possible for those watching.  It was agreed that 2 options be included although Members were relaxed about how this was done so long as it was clear.  It was further agreed that before and after plans be included to help orient people and a simplified diagram at the start of each section was also suggested.  Signage would also be added.

 

DECISION

AGREED to that Page & Park amend their virtual tour of the building taking account of the points raised by Members and this be presented at the next meeting of the Trust on Wednesday, 17 November 2021.
