4. CONVENORS ANNUAL REPORT + QUESTIONS FROM THE FLOOR.
Sue informed the committee that Bill Tannock, who had previously been a member of Kilmun Community Council, had died last week. Donations to charity instead of floral tributes have been requested and the committee decided that KCC would make a donation to the chosen charity.
Sue said that she considered that over the last year KCC has gone from strength to strength. (From the floor Councillor Bruce Marshall backed this up and said that there was always a good turnout of members of the community to meetings, which for a small community was very good.)
Sue said that there have been difficult situations to work on this year notably the Finnartmore development (which is a present delayed because of legal issues) and the proposed Midge Lane forestry access (which is still ongoing).
On a positive note however, the Community Police now have taken delivery of a mobile police Office that will be used on a shared basis for the policing of the Shore Villages.
Sue thanked everyone on the committee for all their hard work and support over the past year and also thanked members of the community for their interest and help.
