Ullapool Community Trust has started a working group to investigate the potential of owning and managing forestry on behalf of our community. We have done some initial consultation and there seems to be support for myriad themes and objectives ranging from recreation and tourism to commercial forestry, coppicing and woodland crofting.
We are now at a stage where we would like to get the ball rolling – this might be some feasibility work and business planning but also developing the ideas pragmatically into something achievable. Ullapool Community Trust would like to invite members of the community to get involved in this project and attend meetings with the current working group. If you have interest in developing any of these areas, please contact UCT, our contact details are below.
