3.Matters Arising:

Speed monitor now in place at Kincraig . 1 further monitor still to be erected.

Parking at the Church carpark for access to Loch Insh is becoming problematic. Large numbers of vehicles including several commercial outdoors companies regularly park there accessing the loch from the beach area which has problems with erosion. Long term solutions are needed and meetings with The Church , commercial companies and residents will be requested in the future.

20 MPH speed limit through village trials are currently being conducted in the Highland region and if successful Kincraig and Insh would be on a waiting list for this.

  1. Business

4.1 Footpath /Walkway from Kincraig Bridge.

Philip Thompson Ltd recently completed a feasibility study to link the Kincraig Bridge to the existing Speyside Way beyond Insh Church. The most cost effective option is Number 3 , an elevated path through the woods in this area. Jamie Williamson the owner of this land is willing to request funding for this from Nature Scot. We are hopeful that CNPA would agree to fund the shortfall of £26,896 to allow this to proceed. It has been recommended that we encourage as much local support as possible to support our grant application and KVCC will facilitate this.
