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.

Meet and Greet Board of Community Land Scotland

Three representatives from the board attended the “Meet and Greet Board of Community Land Scotland”¬†event at Easterbrook Hall in Dumfries on Thursday, 23rd March. This was a great chance for the board members to get to know other local groups involved with like-minded individuals around the south of Scotland. We were also able to catch up with other attendees from HIE and Community Land Scotland.
