Please note a standing invitation to all islanders to attend meetings, to participate and to submit agenda items. If you cannot attend, or do not wish to participate publicly, a confidential message on any relevant topic may be sent to any member of CCC and the substance of that message will be submitted on your behalf.
We will use this page to outline any specific items of current interest, so that everybody knows what (if anything) is going on; this might relate to correspondence with various service agencies or public agencies. We also intend to provide links to the draft minutes of the most recent meeting.

Colonsay Community Council Newsletter – Spring 2017
There is plenty going on at present, this is just a summary:
There are constant communications between CCC and the relevant authorities concerning the reliability of the Wednesday and Saturday ferries, and also in connection with timetabling.
CCC are actively pursuing Transport Scotland, which authority appears to have reneged upon an undertaking to correct the imbalance in freight and commercial costs to various destinations, which leave Colonsay at an almost incredible disadvantage.
The "zero-tolerance" litter campaign continues and marine litter is collected weekly. Members of the public are helping and collection points have been established at Port Easdail and Plaide Mhor, which are a great success.
A sub-committee of nine persons has been appointed to draft guidelines for the allocation of monies receivable from Marine Harvest for the good of the community, amounting to £10,000 p.a. These draft guidelines will be circulated to the community for further input ahead of a public meeting at which a definitive version will be agreed.

The Colonsay Community Council is especially alert to environmental concerns. William Joll is active in the promotion and facilitation of recycling and associated matters (composting etc.), whilst Kevin Byrne co-ordinates the Community Council's ongoing response to marine and other litter - a campaign that embraces all roads, paths, lochsides and the entire 50 mile coastline.
To avoid doubt - this site belongs to CCC, it will probably be updated at first by a specific member of the council but we hope to make it accessible to them all, once we discover how to do that. The details of the hosting agency and details of passwords etc. will be recorded by the Secretary.
