Oban councillor Roddy McCuish has been appointed the new chairperson of Argyll Community Housing Associating (ACHA).

The housing provider’s 14th annual general meeting was held on Skype on September 22.

ACHA’s AGM heard a report from previous chairman Jim Milne MBE followed by approval of the group’s annual accounts, the appointment of  board members and the appointment of auditors.

Other office bearers appointed included Jim Milne from Garelochhead as vice-chairperson, Cathy Grant from Glendaruel as company secretary and Ian McIntyre from Oban as audit chairperson.

Alastair MacGregor, ACHA’s chief executive said: ‘I am really grateful to all of the association’s members and the staff team who pulled together the AGM this year in such unique circumstances and we were able to give a full report to our members and get the necessary approvals carried out.’

Councillor Roddy McCuish added: ‘It’s an honour to be confirmed as chairperson of ACHA. I am fortunate that I inherit a hardworking dedicated staff and board of directors. Good quality housing is a basic human right. ACHA will continue to provide this though continued investment right throughout Argyll and Bute.’

He added: ‘I look forward to increased partnership working with all those interested in
affordable housing.’
