As most of you probably know South Lanarkshire Council have closed all of the public toilets in the county which means that for some time now there have been no public facilities in the village.
The Leadhills Community Company would like to put in a ‘Right to Buy’ interest in the toilet facilities located in the parking area next to the school. To enable this we need to prove we have the support of a good percentage of the village. To this end, we have placed forms in both the hotel bar and in the shop. If you would like to show your support for this endeavour please sign either of these forms.
The forms will be collected at the end of November so that we can submit the registration in December.
Many thanks to those that have already shown their support.

Trip to Mull

Two members of our board went on a fact-finding trip to Mull along with members of the Wanlockhead Community Trust.

We met with representatives of the Mull and Iona Community Trust (MICT) and the Northwest Mull Community Woodland Company and information was gathered which will help with future smaller Community projects.

Update to the Scottish Land Fund

We had an excellent meeting with Ailsa Dalgetty from The Scottish Land Fund. The meeting was held at the Hopetoun Arms and we discussed the current status of the Stage one Funding application, which has now been delayed until the end of August. Also discussed were the pre and post acquisition funding opportunities.

New Articles of Association:

Just a quick reminder that we need a positive response from 75% of the members for the new changes to be implemented to see the proposed Articles of Association. Any members who share an email address need to either reply multiple times or reply once with all member names stating who is accepting/rejecting the proposed changes.

You can also click here and complete the “Member Voting form” to register your vote.

The new Articles will need to be adopted by the members before we are able to complete the initial registration for the estate. As these changes are minor, the Board requires the members to each show their acceptance or rejection of the changes by return email before 20th June 2017.

All members who do not respond will be assumed to have rejected the director’s recommendation.
