Tiree Community Development Trust
The Trust office will close from Monday 24th December 2012 until Thursday 3rd January 2013.
Tiree Transport Forum
The reformed Transport group met on Thursday 15th November to initiate a new constituted group to be actively involved in all transport issues on the island. It was agreed that the top priorities are as follows:
· Fight against the full removal of Road Equivalent Tariff (RET) from commercial vehicles over 6m due to the impact that this will have on the local economy.
· To separate the Tiree – Glasgow Public Service Obligation (PSO) route from the Barra PSO, which restricts the flight times and size of plane.
· And continue to press the local council to upgrade the road surfaces on Tiree.
The Trust will be following up on all the above points with local councillors and MPs.
