The monthly May meeting and combined AGM of Caol Community Council was held recently at which numerous issues were on the agenda for discussion.
Those attending heard updates on various local developments, including that the rock armour work on Caol foreshore is now 90 per cent complete, while gabion basket work for access ramps is now 75 per cent complete.
Piling works on the foreshore are complete and have moved round to the embankment between Caol spit and Kilmallie road.
Drainage works on Glenmallie road have also been completed and works continue on the second of the six phases of new drainage works on Erracht Drive.
Pumping station works are almost finished; only one manhole and two headwalls to install, while drainage installation works and a new water main have been installed on Kilmallie Road.
Vegetation has also been stripped along the bank of the river to allow installation of rock armour.
Members also heard that all the plans for local platinum jubilee celebrations for HM The Queen were going to plan. Posters will be published and displayed in the next couple of days.
A short discussion was then had with new Caol and Mallaig ward councillor Liz Saggers (Conservative) covering all the ongoing issues in Caol and Lochyside.
The next community council meeting will be held on Tuesday June 21 at 7pm.
