Welcome to the Tiree Community Council website

What do we do?
As a Community Council we are the  first, or the grass-roots, tier of statutory representation in Scotland.
We  bridge the gap between local authorities and communities, thereby ensuring that public authorities are aware of the opinions, and needs, of the Tiree community.
How do we do it?
We articulate the views and concerns of Tiree’s residents on a wide range of issues of public concern, and making representations to Argyll and Bute Council, Scottish Government and other public sector bodies within or affecting Tiree Community Council’s sphere of interest.
How do we gather the Community’s  views?  
Public meetings of Tiree Community Council are held regularly throughout the year.
All members of the public are welcome.
Public meetings, and their agenda, are advertised well in advance.
We are always happy to receive correspondence by e-mail with questions or issues to be raised.
Our website has a comments facility which requires you to register a named account to post.
We also operate a Facebook Page where routine issues are often flagged and comments can also be made there with a Facebook account.
Both of these forms of comment are governed by a Moderation policy.
For those not wishing to use those mechanisms to comment on a page or a Facebook post, the option is always available to comment separately to us directly by email.
COVID-19
Due to the current pandemic all planned in-person meetings are cancelled until further notice.
We are now holding meetings using Zoom, via internet/phone conference.
TCC members are liaising with key service providers and the new community group “TAIC” (Tiree Action in the Community) has been formed to organise volunteer efforts to support the most at risk members of our community and respond to needs as they develop.
A community notice board has been established for regular updates on the Tiree Trust website here: http://www.tireetrust.org.uk/covid19/
