Glenfinnan Community Council held its January meeting this week at the National Trust Centre.

Matters discussed included the latest on plans for the community facility proposed for the former Marine Harvest hut. The council is awaiting a change of use consent and members heard Transport Scotland wishes to extend the consultation period.

The plans for more tourist parking, including a new car park, are progressing, with a lease being negotiated and project management considered.

Calls to get the speed limit reduced on the A830 were mentioned – MSP Kate Forbes received a response from Transport Scotland, as a vehicle and pedestrian crossing survey was undertaken in the vicinity of Glenfinnan Monument in 2018 and the findings will be taken into consideration.

Bear Scotland is to investigate the possibility of a controlled pedestrian crossing.

In other business Marine Harvest is be contacted with a request to clean up debris near the Callop walkway.

The next community council meeting will be at 8pm on February 25 in the National Trust Centre.
