Meeting opened with annual AGM.
Chair Report – IJ thanks all present and felt this year has been a successful one. The creation of the Association and the works carried out has been a real positive link within the village, and the NLCA has over 50 members and a strong committee. Notable progress being made with plans to buy the land at Inchree.
Fewer meetings due to not being able to have a quorum. As elections will be due it is hoped we can encourage locals to become involved in NLCC.
We are still pressing forward re road safety (speed limits and maintenance) and maintain support of our scenic area.
We put submissions in to the Highland & Island Development plans along with the other ccs in South Lochaber but all appear to have been sidelined.
Negatives are the apathy received from planning and transport authorities.
Treasurer report; given by CC. Financial report given and explained. Due to loss of grant amount we were only able to offer donations to 3 local groups but will not be able to offer anything further. Report was proposed for adoption by IJ and seconded by AM, all agreed
IJ then asked for all office bearers to stand down and proposed all be re-elected to office – all agreed
