The area of the Community Council (The Applecross Ward) is that part of Applecross peninsula south of an
imaginary line from Fearnabeg to Tornapress including up to Fearnamore and the Kishorn Base (known colloquially as the
Howard Doris site).
The objectives of the Community Council are to promote the well being of the community (those resident in the area defined) by
ascertaining, co-ordinating and expressing to the relevant local and public authorities the views and desires of the community
it represents in relation to matters for which these authorities are responsible and to take such action in the interests of
the community as appears to it to be expedient and practicable.
The Community Council consists of six persons elected by and from all persons aged 18 (and over) living in the area whose names
appear on the relevant, most current, electoral registers.
The Community Council is required to meet at least six times per annum and the maximum period between meetings must be not more
than three calendar months.
Meetings of Applecross Community Council take place in the community hall normally at 7.30 in the evening and normally on the second
Tuesday of the month. All meetings of the Council are open to members of the public but such members of the public as attend
meetings shall only be permitted to speak to the Council if specifically requested to do so by the Chairman.
An Annual General Meeting which shall be open to all persons resident within the area of the Community Council will be held in
each year to receive an annual report of the work of the Council and an audited statement of accounts, and to discuss any other
matters of interest to the community.
The Community Council maintains insurance cover in repect of public liability responsibility devolving upon the Community Council
in the execution of their several functions in pursuance of their objects.
