Acharacle Community Council (ACC) has fallen below the required number of councillors and as a result goes into abeyance following last week’s decision by community councillor Joanne Matheson to stand down.

She gave as her reason an alleged lack of attendance since August at community council meetings by one particular councillor, which Mrs Matheson said she found ‘unacceptable’.

Mrs Matheson posted on the community council’s Facebook page: ‘Since we only have the minimum number of councillors required, my resignation has put ACC into abeyance.

‘Highland Council has been notified and we will be able to hold an election early next year. Please give consideration to whether you would be willing to stand. We should try to avoid having the minimum number of councillors again, if possible.’
