*Plockton and District Community Council (CC) established a participation process with the Highland Council (HC) in December, 2020.  Participation allows a community body to talk with public authorities about local issues and services.

The CC request was based on community concerns over traffic management and parking in Plockton and speed limits in Duirinish.

The HC accepted this request and discussions were held with all the relevant Highland Council roads officers culminating on a visit to the village by Shane Manning, principal officer for traffic management and control.

Mr Manning and his team have produced a document with suggestions and proposals, principally on parking in Plockton, for community consideration.

The CC has advertised this document and look forward to getting comments from the community before producing feedback to HC.

Secretary Charlie M MacRae, appointed secretary/treasurer on  October 3, 1961, has now done the secretary job for 60 years. He gave up the treasurer post in 2014 after 53 years.
