Work started this week on the Loch Clash project – repairing the drain and disposing of the 2 derelict caravans. For more photos, see the Loch Clash page at: https://klbcompany.com/loch-clash-redevelopment/
We have been awarded a grant of £15,000 from the Highland Council’s Empty Houses Fund. This represents over 50% of the total estimated cost to repair/renovate the house. We are currently seeking funds for the rest of the costs. Once in place, the work can begin.
There is one week left to do complete the Community Broadband Survey. The easiest way is online:
The purpose of the survey is to discover the pattern of broadband speeds in the Kinlochbervie area, whether people are satisfied with their broadband speeds and whether there is interest in faster broadband. Superfast broadband is being rolled out across Scotland but under current plans, it will not reach remote communities like ours. The Community Broadband Survey is necessary before we can move on to the second stage in the Community Broadband Scotland program which is an assessment of technical solutions.
The survey will be open until February 29, after which the results will be tabulated and put on this website.
Finally! The work on Phase 1 of the Loch Clash Pier project is about to begin. The official start date (weather permitting) is 22 February 2016. This spring should see some real change – clearing the site, building a retaining wall, putting in 5 bays for campervans and hooking up electricity, water and waste disposal.
We have sent over 200 questionnaires to households in the Kinlochbervie area. The purpose of the survey is to discover broadband speeds in this area and to assess demand for faster broadband.
The quickest way to do the survey is to complete it online – it just takes a few minutes:
You may also fill in the survey by hand and post it to us or drop it off in the striped boxes (at Garage & at Ceilidh House). Click the links below for copies of the questionnaire and the covering letter.
We also want to hear from people who have holiday homes or second homes in the area.
The deadline for returning the survey is Friday 26 February 2016.
