Please note that Sandra Byrne from Community Broadband Scotland will give
a presentation on the Future of Broadband in Ardnamurchan at the meeting. She
will clarify the possibilities of connecting the different communities in West
Ardnamurchan to the new Superfast Broadband Network and will answer questions
from the public. Please show your support for improved broadband in the area
and attend the meeting
We will also have Steve Pimborough from the new Patient Transport and Booking Service attending,
to discuss how the service can help us. He wants to find out about any problems
we encounter with transport in our area and to discuss possible solutions.
Steve will report back on the meeting to the Integrated Transport Project Board.
A meeting of the directors of the Community Development Company took place last night, at which the following matters were discussed: 1. Amendments to the Articles: Revision of the Articles of Association is almost complete. An EGM has been called for 7pm on 9th January in the Learning Centre to adopt them. 2. Kilchoan Shop: Once the new Articles are adopted, the Company will be in a position to exercise a right to buy on the shop. 3. Notice Boards: The company is still trying to source three new noticeboards. The prices quoted so far have been far too high. 4. Access to Pontoons: Marine Harvest has planning permission for the development at Maclean's Nose and is likely to site a pontoon in the bay by the CalMac pier. WACDC will be approaching MH to request that community use be permitted. 5. Petrol Station: WACDC understands that the present owner still hasn't talked to Highlands & Islands Enterprise about sourcing grants to replace the pumps. At present, only one of the two UL pumps functions. 6. Website: The company agreed to explore the possibility of operating a community website. It is proposed to build the website ourselves, with professional help. If anyone would like to be involved in this, which would include training, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. A copy of the proposal is here.
