The UK Serious Fraud Office has opened an investigation into GFG Alliance and its dealings with Greensill.
Community council secretary Russell Leaper said some of those attending the online event were expecting to be given details of an Environmental Impact Assessment [EIA] as part of the process.
Subject to approvals and any further impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, Alvance aims to commence the new development works in 2021 and target full operation by 2024.
‘But whatever we do is probably something people would rather sooner do without and I accept that,’ admitted Lochaber smelter boss, Brian King.
John Hutchison, acting chairman of Kilmallie Community Council, said members were ‘slightly in the dark’ over the Alvance proposals.
The Lochaber smelter, located at Fort William, has been singled out for praise in a motion submitted to the Scottish Parliament by Highlands and Islands MSP Donald Cameron.
The donation of around 250 FFP3 facemasks was made to the hospital as smelter workers have very little need for them in day-to-day work.
