  1. MINTUES OF LAST BOARD MEETING

The minutes of the Board meeting of 16th June 2021 were proposed by SH and seconded by DR.

  1. MATTERS ARISING

Due to personal commitments TG has resigned from the LCT Board.  All of the Board thanked TG for her hard work during her time as a director and wished her well.

CS updated the Board on the bank business profile which needs to be completed by 3 September 2021.  There has been confusion at the bank as one of the directors does not have the appropriate ID.  CS has raised a complaint with the bank and LCT has received £200 compensation but the problem has still not been resolved.

 

  1. FINANCIAL UPDATE

3.1 Financial report

CS updated the Board with the financials for the current position in the financial year.

  1. APPLICATIONS

 

4.1  GDCE – URN 52 – HOME ENERGY EFFICIENCY GRANT     (Grant requested £1.5MILLION)

         There was much discussion regarding this application which would enable each household to apply for a grant of £10,000 for home energy efficiency initiatives.  The grant would only be paid once other sources of funding had been reviewed and applied for.  The Board has reviewed other such grants paid by other trusts and benefit funds and was in principle in support of the grant and appreciated the impact on the climate but felt the value of each individual grant was too large. There was also a concern that it was the individual householder that would benefit and not the community. It was agreed that CS would contact GDCE to ascertain how the £10k household value had been obtained.

Action:  CS to contact GDCE

 

4.2   ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING POINT

         A suggestion has been raised by a member of the community to the Development Company as to whether it would be worth considering providing funding for EVC points in individual homes as the current Highland Council timescale for installing them is 2 – 3 years.  There is currently a £350 grant available to householders from the Scottish Government.  The board would like to thank the community member for the suggestion and would ask that a simple survey was conducted to ascertain the demand before it could be further investigated.

4.2   FIRE ALARM / SAFETY REGULATIONS

In January 2022 there are changes to the domestic fire safety regulations where by all  households must have smoke alarms that are linked, carbon dioxide alarms and heat alarms.  LCT has been contacted by a member to ascertain if LCT could contribute towards the costs.  For LCT to consider this an application would need to be completed and it was felt that TGDDC would be in a better position to consider this.

Action – CS to discuss with TGDDC

5.0   COMMUNICATION

 

5.1   WEBSITE UPDATE

               The website is progressing and mock applications have been raised to test the system.  CS is continuing discussions with Doepud.  There are a number of changes that will be requested and CS will ascertain a completion and go live date for the new site.

6.0   EGM / AGM

         There are a number of changes that are required to the Articles of Association and these are with Alpin Stewart for review.

The proposed date for the AGM is 27th October and it will be via Zoom.

Two directors will need to stand down at the AGM and this will need to be the longest serving directors.

LCT will be seeking to recruit 4 directors at the AGM as this is the number of vacancies on the Board.  Flyers will be sent to all households seeking director applicants.

It was also agreed that the annual report will be produced and sent to all households following the AGM. 

7.0   AOCB

         The Board confirmed that CS can offer the old LCT laptop to the charity, the Libertie project who will clear all data from them and provide them to those in need of them

One of the LCT directors has been approached by members of the community regarding the ending of the yoga and art classes, which are managed by TGDDC under the Activate Garve and District project and are funded by LCT.  Concern was raised as to why further funding had not been applied for and also the lack of notice of the classes finishing.  There was a suggestion that an application for funding could be raised by the individual groups and that there may not be a need for a co-ordinator as the classes are already established.

Action:  CS to discuss with TH of TGDDC

 

Strathgarve Primary School has funds outstanding and the Head is currently on Maternity Leave.  It was agreed that the school would keep LCT updated of expenditure but did not need to yet complete the Project Feedback form.

DATE OF NEXT MEETING:         Wednesday 15th September
