From Dale Meegan:
The West Ardnamurchan Community Development Company and Community Council have received the final report following the Lottery funded community consultation which was held earlier this summer, and with it sixty recommendations. To view a copy of the report (2.4MB) click here, and/or for its summary document (1MB) click here.
James Hilder of An Roth Associates Ltd who led the Lottery funded community consultation said they had been “....struck by the strength of feeling towards West Ardnamurchan, and that it somehow works differently to other local areas. For a population of approximately 281 there is strong ‘social capital’ generated by some 9 Committees, 5 Grazings Committees, 3 service teams & 20 or so clubs or societies or informal activity groups. In addition, the area boasts over 80 businesses or employing organisations…. (The report) is offered to all West Ardnamurchan groups to prompt further thought and discussion and hopefully, stimulate action."
A Community Meeting will be held on Wednesday 20th September at 7pm in Kilchoan Community Centre to present the findings of the consultation exercise and also to hear from various community organisations about their current plans or developments. There will also be an opportunity to discuss how we take things forward collectively.
