Approximately 40 people attended a Public Meeting on Monday 27 January in Scalpay Community Centre to formally introduce North Harris Trust’s new Scalpay Development Officer.
After a brief welcome and introduction from the Trust Chair, Calum MacKay, the Scalpay Development Officer, Ann-Marie Hewitt, outlined some of the projects that will be developed over the course of the next two years. These projects include, but are not limited to, possible developments with the Scalpay School buildings and Care Unit, an East Loch Tarbert Marina project, which will include the North Harbour in Scalpay, and a 50kw wind turbine. Land Management issues, such as the control and eradication of invasive species like gunnera, were also discussed.
The Trust will inform the community of news on these projects when it becomes available.
If you have any question regarding the work of the Trust, or would like to make suggestions for development opportunities, please get in touch with staff, or Directors, or pop into our office in Tarbert. The Trust is especially keen to hear from individuals or businesses who would consider renting space in the School Buildings should the Trust purchase them on behalf of the community.
The three nominated Directors for Scalpay are: Kenny MacLeod, Sheila Roderick and DJ Cunningham.
