Community Development in Applecross
The Applecross Community Company has a wide remit to promote community development on the peninsula.
Since June 2011 Applecross now has a full time Local Development Officer, funded for 2 years by Highlands and Islands Enterprise.
This post aims to facilitate progress on a number of areas of community development, subject to thorough local consultation. Suggested priorities at this stage include the following (in addition to carbon footprint reduction and community micro-hydro development):
Local affordable housing and new housing sites
Diversification of job opportunities
Campaign for better broadband internet provision
Public toilets refurbishment
Pre-school playground development
Improving care of the elderly
