Councillor Lyndsey Johnston has been appointed as Chair of The Highland Council’s Black Isle Area Committee.
Her appointment was made earlier today (8 August 2022), at the first Black Isle Area Committee held since this year’s local Government election.
After taking the chair, Councillor Johnston thanked Members for their support and called for the appointment of a Vice Chair.
Following a vote, the position of Vice Chair was filled by Cllr Morven-May MacCallum.
During the meeting members also had an opportunity to listen to Police Scotland’s latest local performance report.
Speaking after the meeting, Councillor Johnston said:
“I’d like to thank my colleagues for their support. I look forward to chairing the Area Committee and helping serve the people of the Black Isle.
“The Committee is committed to working hard and delivering the priorities of this beautiful area.”
“Our Committee will be working hard to make sure that as well as delivering local services effectively and efficiently, we look to exploring new opportunities that will benefit the lives of people and help our local communities prosper.”
