COMMUNICATION and transparency between all parties is key to success, according to groups embarking on a project to make Morvern a better place to live, work and visit.
A public meeting took place in Lochaline Village Hall recently to gauge the community’s opinion on a potential Morvern landscape project.
More than 70 people turned up, with representatives from community groups including Morvern Community Development Company (MCDC), Morvern Community Council (MCC), Morvern Community Woodlands (MCW), Morvern Community Trust (MCT), the heritage society, Lochaline Village Hall and several large and small landowners including Ardtornish and Drimnin Estate and the Forestry Commission.
While discussions on a possible landscape project are at a very early stage, some, but not all, aspects could be connected to a native woodland restoration project.
MCDC stressed it was important not to cross over with projects that are already under way. It was decided to form a steering committee to further consult with the community using some of the outcomes and discussion points of the meeting as a basis for a questionnaire.
