FOL­LOW­ING a board meet­ing of Ballachulish Com­mu­nity Com­pany (BCC), it emerged the board would be largely un­changed for the year through to Oc­to­ber 2017.

BCC is still wait­ing to see if the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment will pro­vide fund­ing for com­mu­nity projects, in­clud­ing the vil­lage’s hy­dro scheme. Mean­while, other av­enues of ac­quir­ing cap­i­tal are be­ing ex­plored.

The Gle­nachul­ish scheme now has plan­ning per­mis­sion, though it is fac­ing sim­i­lar fund­ing dif­fi­cul­ties. If it goes ahead, BCC will have a five per cent share in it and is mon­i­tor­ing the op­por­tu­nity of ac­quir­ing a larger com­mu­nity share.

BCC is mov­ing to­wards col­lect­ing mem­ber­ship pay­ments through on­line bank­ing. In the mean­time, any­one wish­ing to pay the £ 5 sum should hand it to a board mem­ber.
