Sunart Community Company (originally known as Strontian Community Company) was formally incorporated on 22nd November 2005 and set up to allow the acquisition of various fishing and recreation areas by the local community. There are currently nine directors: membership is open to all residents in the Sunart Community Council area and the Company is now a registered charity. Full details of our constitution and purposes can be found here. The fixed assets of the Company are the fishing rights on the Strontian and Polloch Rivers and Loch Doilet, the Strontian village green and two areas within the Strontian community woodland. We are in the process of developing a community hydro-electric scheme, which, if successful, will bring significant funds into the community. The fisheries owned and leased by Sunart Community Company are now operated under a joint management agreement in conjunction with Strontian Angling Association. Habitat and access improvements and the development of a hatchery are ongoing. Fishing permits are available through a variety of local outlets. The Company is also working with Sunart Community Compost Group to ensure the continued development of the Strontian Community Compost site. Director meetings are held every six weeks and the AGM is held in May every year. We are always delighted to welcome new members and happy to hear your comments and suggestions. We’ve recently started to publish minutes of our meetings, and these can be found here.
We are currently looking for a paid worker to get involved in our Community Development Plan. Interested? Further details are available here.
