2021 has been quite a year so far for MCDC and that is not counting the impact of the COVID pandemic on our community. We have completed 3 major projects that provide really tangible benefits for the Morvern community. All three projects were delivered on time and on budget by the board of volunteer directors and our Project Officer. Many years of planning and consultation finally came to fruition and despite COVID19 adding many challenges to construction. Please read about the projects under Current Projects – Barr Hydro, Housing and Community Business Hub.
MCDC would like to thank all our funders and volunteers for all the help an support with these projects:
Highlands and Islands Enterprise
Rural Housing Fund
Morvern Community Trust
SSE Sustainable Development Fund
Regeneration Capital Grant Fund
Local Energy Scotland
The Energy Investment Fund
The work on construction of the Hub is currently suspended following the Scottish Government guidelines. Once the restrictions are relaxed and when it is safe to do so, we will be back on site.
Hydro investment – this has been a lengthy process and discussions and a public meeting (04/11/13) were held with Morvern Community Council (MCC) and Morvern Community Trust (MCT).
In 1999 land on three sides of Lochaline Stores was purchased and developed to construct a petrol and diesel filling station together with additonal parking spaces for community use.
