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 A&B County Council, Scottish Government, other public sector bodies, within 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.
Due to the current pandemic all planned in-person meetings are cancelled until further notice.
We are beginning to organise 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/
