Welcome to Knockbain Community Council. We are the statutory body serving Munlochy, North Kessock and the smaller communities between and around them on the Black Isle, just north of Inverness. You can see our location here

The role of our Community Council is to represent the issues and concerns of the local residents who live in the area, which could have a benefit to our communities.

Unauthorised moving of bottle banks at North Kessock

The Highland Council is disappointed to learn that an individual or individuals within North Kessock have decided to ignore the democratic decision of the local community on the location of the bottle banks and move these overnight to outside the village hall.  

874 members of the local community voted in February and of this group, 67%% decided that the bottle banks should be returned to the car park location in North Kessock.

The bottle banks have been returned this morning to the location agreed by the community but this has wasted Council officer time and resource which should be focused on delivering services for the local community. This is unacceptable. 

The Council has therefore reported the matter to the Police and we are seeking advice on next steps.  

The Council would urge anyone with information to contact Police Scotland on 101.
