Plock­ton

The Oban Times - - Districts -

PLOCK­TON’S com­mu­nity tele­phone di­rec­tory has been up­dated and pro­ceeds from its sale do­nated to three good causes.

Sales of the di­rec­tory, which is pro­duced by Mary Gol­lan and Hugh MacQuar­rie, raised £600 which has been split evenly be­tween a prostate can­cer char­ity, Kyleakin Con­nec­tions and Plock­ton Bad­minton Club.

Plock­ton and Dis­trict Com­mu­nity Coun­cil met in Plock­ton Hall on Tues­day May 2.

Among the items dis­cussed was the poor state of Innes Street. High­land Coun­cil had promised two years ago it would move the Plock­ton sign at the en­trance to the vil­lage to the south side of Burnside, but this has never been done. It was also noted bridge im­prove­ments op­po­site the high school have not been car­ried out.

Kyle and Lochalsh Com­mu­nity Trust (KLCT) also met this month. A rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Plock­ton and Dis­trict Com­mu­nity Coun­cil, along with three rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Plock­ton Har­bour Com­mu­nity In­ter­est Com­pany, at­tended the meet­ing where it was con­firmed that KLCT ar­ti­cles of as­so­ci­a­tion in­clude the Plock­ton dis­trict and the whole of Lochalsh.

How­ever it was noted no con­sul­ta­tion was un­der­taken with Plock­ton and Dis­trict Com­mu­nity Coun­cil prior to its for­ma­tion. As a de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer is cur­rently be­ing re­cruited, it was pointed out that part of their role should be to in­crease en­gage­ment with the rest of the com­mu­nity coun­cils in Lochalsh, not only Kyle. The next meet­ing of the group will be the AGM on Tues­day June 13.

In April, Plock­ton saw 3.5 inches of rain with only eight dry days. The warmest day was 14°C and the coolest was 0.9°C.
