Monday, February 26th, is the closing date for nomination forms for the election of new Western Isles Development Trust Directors.
A reminder is issued to residents in the Western Isles than an election for eight Directors to serve on the Western Isles Development Trust is being undertaken on behalf of the Trust by Comhairle nan Eilean Siar’s Election Team.
The purpose of the Western Isles Development Trust is to support the regeneration and development of the Outer Hebrides through disbursement of community benefit secured from the local deployment of renewable energy installations.
A Director may be either an individual or a body corporate. To be eligible to serve as a Director, an individual must be ordinarily resident in the area to which they are seeking election or, in the case of a body corporate, have a presence in the area to which election is sought.
In the upcoming election, two Directors will be elected for each of the following areas – Barra; Uist; Harris, and Lewis.
Candidate nomination forms, and further information, can be found at www.widt.co.uk
If more than two nomination forms are received for any area, a postal ballot of ordinary members of the Trust will be held.
