Changes to Community Conversation Timetable

The fifth round of Comhairle Community Conversations will get underway tonight, Monday 5th October, with the virtual Stornoway meeting.

 The Community Conversations offer an opportunity for members of the public to engage with the Comhairle on topics including the Comhairle Budget, Crown Estate funding and service delivery.

Upon the request of local council members and with consideration for the COVID-19 outbreak the Uist and Benbecula community conversations, originally scheduled for Tuesday 6th October and Wednesday 7th October have been postponed to a later date. Residents of Uist can, of course, contact their local members in the usual manner to feed views into the process. The Harris virtual meeting has been moved from Thursday 8th October to Wednesday 7th October.

The programme for each Community Conversation will be as follows:

  1. PowerPoint presentation on financial position of the Comhairle.
  2. Request that individuals and groups complete the online Budget Consultation.
  3. Review of the previous round of Crown Estate applications and guidance on how to apply for the next round of funding.
  4. Facilitated discussion regarding community engagement and service delivery.
