Cash Machine Survey

When the Royal Bank of Scotland announced revised hours of opening last year, Tiree Community Council were asked by members of the public at that time to request further clarification from RBS. As it was apparent from correspondence with RBS that the decision to introduce shorter opening hours would not be reversed, Tiree Community Council felt that the provision by RBS of 24 hour cash dispensing and balance enquiry by the installation of a ‘hole in the wall’ cash dispenser, or ATM, at RBS Scarinish would provide additional convenience for the public.

Further enquiries to RBS by Tiree Community Council asking that consideration of 24 hour cash dispensing be looked at has not at this time met with success. However, in order to build a suitable business case, the local RBS branch manager has requested that Tiree Community Council provide RBS with some evidence of the numbers that would potentially make use of 24 hour cash dispensing at RBS Scarinish.

To help Tiree Community Council provide some factual evidence to RBS, we would be most grateful if you would take the time to complete a very short and simple survey. We will then pass this additional information to RBS to allow them to make an evidence based decision.

Bin Collections

This is a reminder that Tiree comes under ‘Phase 3’ of the change to domestic bin collections from the week commencing 28th November 2016.

General waste will move to a three weekly collection. Recycling will remain at fortnightly.

The Council have assured us that new timetables will be sent out to all householders. In the meantime, do keep an eye out in local press for any updates from Argyll & Bute.

When a new calendar is available, it will show here. However, do bear in mind that this page DOES NOT currently show the new collection information.

 

Bin Collections in Tiree – FEEDBACK NEEDED

Following a meeting with Cllr Roddy McCuish and Jim Smith from Argyll and Bute Council, we can confirm that the bin uplifts will be changing around mid August.

From mid August:

  • General refuse uplift will move to 3 weekly
  • Recycling refuse uplift will remain at 2 weekly

Holiday home owners will be offered the option to pay for an addition uplift at commercial rates.

Argyll & Bute Council will be in touch with all residents in due course. At the moment, though we are keen to get feedback and thoughts from residents and holiday home or second home owners – and we will pass these on to Cllr McCuish.
