Tiree Community Development Trust
Mary Jean Devon and Roddy McCuish are due to visit Tiree in October/November (date TBC).
The Trust has asked to meet with them to discuss general island issues. If there is a specific issue you would like us to raise then please get in touch.
The Scottish Government is investigating the impact of the removal of Road Equivalent Tariff (RET) fares from commercial vehicles on the economies of the Western Isles, Coll and Tiree since 1 April 2012. On some routes the removal resulted in an increase of up to 50% in commercial vehicle fares in April 2012.
A key aim of the study is to investigate the impact of removing the RET fare on businesses and, ultimately, the local economies of the islands. As part of the study, MVA Consultancy has been commissioned to carry out a survey to assess the potential impacts of moving to pre RET commercial vehicle fares. They would be very grateful if Tiree’s business users could complete the survey by copying the link below into your web browser.
