Ardgay & District CC update

  • Meetings rezoomed with grant applications as normal. Due to Covid restrictions we are still unable to hold regular meetings, so we have had a few meetings via Zoom. If anyone has items they wish to raise please contact us by email (or speak to any community councillor) and we will discuss at our next meeting and get back to you.
  • Community Benefit funds. We are once again accepting applications to the Beinn Tharsuinn and Beinn nan Oighrean funds. We have recently received the Year 1 Community Benefit payment from Coire na Cloiche Wind Farm. For more information, see article here
  • Jubilee Hill plans. After strong representations from the local community, Balnagown Estate withdrew their plans for tree planting on Jubilee Hill and replaced it with a reduced area to be fenced and allowed to naturally regenerate. The plan can be accessed here: http://ardgayanddistrictcommunitycouncil.org.uk/jubilee-hill-final-plan/
  • Dog fouling. Once again this item has been brought to our attention. There are several areas of the village where owners are consistently not clearing up after their dogs. It is a dog owner’s responsibility to clear up after their pet and it is a criminal offence carrying an £80 fine not to do so.
  • Speeding. Several residents have mentioned a perceived increase in speeding, particularly along the Gledfield straight. Please observe this speed limit, particularly now the school is back in session.
  • Ardgay toilets. The management has been taken back in-house by The Highland Council.
  • Wind farms. The Scottish Government have agreed that consultations can be conducted online. We will encourage any developers planning to do this in Ardgay & District CC area to leaflet all households.
