Consultation on future of Argyll and Bute air services

The Argyll and Bute Council is consulting on local air transport services on the West Coast area, linking Oban, Tiree, Coll, Colonsay and Islay. This consultation will inform the next contract for the service and shall consider issues including:

•            Current use of the air service
•            Preferred flight times and days
•            The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to deliver services

The last item is under active consideration following successful trials of UAVs to deliver supplies during the pandemic, resulting in significant savings for the NHS. Active work is in development to create a UAV Hub at Oban airport, with Royal Mail also interested in the possible applications.

If you would like to respond to the consultation directly, or just find out more, you can do so here: https://www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/consultations/argyll-and-bute-council-west-coast-air-services-pso

TCC will be happy to make a submission on behalf of Tiree constituents, so if you would like to feed in your views to that, please email TCC member Phyl Meyer at phyl@tireecommunitycouncil.co.uk

Take part in survey on the future of schools leadership in Argyll and Bute

We are currently running a survey to gather views from the community on proposed changes to the way schools are led in our Council area – proposals which are quite similar in many ways to the temporary arrangement that our own school has been operating under with Oban High School for the past two years.
 
You will find more information about the survey within the survey introduction. Please note that all submissions are anonymous. We will ask about what group you belong to within the community, but individual responses cannot be linked back to a named individual.
You will find links to information about the Council’s proposal and the school’s latest HMIE report in the introduction, or you can follow the links below.

Draft minutes TCC January 12th 2022

Planning matters – the below is an excerpt from a Scottish Government newsletter which will inform the issues we will look at during this meeting:

Local Place Plans – Local Place Plans offer communities the opportunity to develop proposals for their local area, expressing their aspirations and ambitions for future change. Legislation on the preparation, submission and registration of Local Place Plans came into force on 22 January. The Scottish Government has prepared a Circular to accompany the legislation – Planning circular 1/2022: Local Place Plans – gov.scot (www.gov.scot). Additional resources to support their development will be published shortly. You will be able to find these resources at www.ourplace.scot in the coming weeks.

OurPlace website – the OurPlace website was launched on 20 January.  It includes information, tools and resources to help support the development of places and services that improve our health, our prosperity, our quality of life and protect our environment.

Consultations – community councils may be interested in three current consultations from the Scottish Government.

Draft National Planning Framework 4 – NPF4 will, when adopted, set out the Scottish Governments priorities and policies for the planning system up to 2045. Further resources are available at www.transformingplanning.scot.  

Local Development Plan Regulations and Guidance –  seeks views on the secondary legislative requirements and the draft guidance on implementing the future local development plan system. 

Open Space Strategies and Play Sufficiency Assessments – there are new duties on planning authorities to prepare and publish an Open Space Strategy, and to assess the sufficiency of play opportunities in their area for children. Scottish Ministers have powers to prepare regulations and this consultation paper discusses the proposed provisions and seeks views on both sets of draft regulations.

The Government is inviting comments on the three consultations by 31 March 2022.

Guidance on joining the meeting:

You can choose how you view the meeting using the app if joining via the internet – “Gallery view” shows you multiple participants

Please note that by default you will join the meeting muted (i.e. you will not be sending sound out to the rest of the participants) – please leave yourself muted unless you need to speak, and when invited to do so by the chair, and remember to re-mute afterwards. This is needed to ensure that the call is not made very difficult to follow by background noise from multiple people, which can be extremely disruptive to the call.

We suggest that members of the public not enable their camera, unless wishing to be seen when making a contribution to the meeting. This saves bandwidth and reduces the size of the recording for the minutes.

If joining on a PC, tablet or other device, please set your screen name to a recognisable form of your actual name so that other participants know who you are – this is required if you wish to participate via either speaking or using the text chat.

The mute and unmute button is in the lower left, and looks like a microphone, next to the button for switching your webcam on/off.

Using the simultaneous translation function:

If using the standard Zoom app on a PC, you should see a button for “Interpretation” – click on this, and then choose the language you would prefer to follow the meeting in – i.e. if you only have English, click that. If you wish to hear the Gaelic, choose that. If you are happy to follow the speakers in either language, you do not need to choose either. Note: If you do not choose an interpretation language, you will not hear any interpretation at all.

On an iPad, this function can be found under a button in the top right of the app.

For more details see this page: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/360034919791-Using-Language-Interpretation-in-your-meeting-or-webinar#h_6802bbbc-2ec9-47cb-a04c-6aac35914d82

If you are using a telephone to dial in, please be aware that the simultaneous translation feature will not be available to you. Sorry! The mute and unmute command can be given by typing on your handset:

*6

Requesting to speak:

If joining by computer, you can find a button to “Raise your hand” to ask to speak under the “Participants” menu, accessed by pressing the Participants button (looks like a human figure, in the middle of the bottom part of the window). You can also use the chat function to make a comment or to ask to speak on a point.

You can “raise your hand” to ask to speak if phoning in by using the code:

*9

As ever if you have questions or if there is anything we can do to help you take part in the meeting accessibly, please let us know by e-mailing phyl@tireecommunitycouncil.co.uk

Baugh phone box repaired and restored

Sometimes persistence pays off! Although times have moved on for the classic red phone box and seeing one still in service is an increasingly rare sight in the age of smartphones, they can still be an important and valued service for some, and an occasional savour in time of need. Tiree has only one box still maintained in-service, the rest have been transferred to the community for use in various ways.

Unfortunately the Baugh phone box was inoperable for quite some time, and had deteriorated badly, with it’s door eventually breaking off entirely. This is an issue that has been raised with TCC several times over a period of over 3 years and has been raised with BT many times, but various factors not least of them the COVID-19 pandemic had delayed a full resolution.

We are however delighted to report that thanks to the attentions of BT engineers, the box has now resumed it’s former glory and is operational, repaired with a new door and some fresh paint:

UPDATE: Unfortunately, we have reports that there is still an issue – the coin mechanism is only accepting pound coins! This is on file to be addressed soon!

Meeting Notice: Wed 20th October 2021

TCC members have agreed due to clashes of availability for councillors on the 13th during October holidays to push back the next scheduled meeting to Wednesday October 20th at 7pm.

Agenda:

1. Welcome
2. Apologies
3. Declarations of interest
4. Minutes of last meeting and matters arising: access to TCC accounts; new bin
lorry; community garden; licensing of short-term lets
5. Correspondence: Tiree Harbour Users Consultative Forum on 22 November; Mull
schools; Licensing Board meeting 9th November; human waste at Balevullin
beach; Light Up Red Campaign
6. Meetings reports: Tiree Community Development Trust; Mull Community Council
7. Consultations: National Care Service; Policing; Island Bond; CalMac Socio-
