Agreement on transfer
MEMBERS of the Highland Council’s Places Committee have agreed to transfer the Highland Council ranger service to High Life Highland.
Committee chairman Councillor Allan Henderson said: ‘In the past few years the number of rangers has fallen from 22 to 10.5 full-time equivalent posts to meet saving targets. I believe this proposal to transfer the team to High Life Highland is a great opportunity for the ranger service to grow and continue to play its important role in schools and communities.’
Work on the transfer will start later this year. In the meantime, the ranger service will operate as normal.
