Tuesday, February 27th, is the day that visions for the future will be presented in Stornoway. It starts off at midday in the Town Hall, when traffic measures will be put on display until 8.30pm. Proposals for a one-way system, involving Lewis Street amongst others, can be inspected. The number of carparking spaces will also be increased under same proposals. Probably not like it was foreseen during the 2005 Stornoway Carnival.
At 7 o'clock In the evening of the same day, Western Isles Health Board is organising a public meeting in the Education Unit at Western Isles Hospital in Stornoway to present its vision of the future for health services in these islands. Meeting starts at 7pm. The aim for this revamp is to bring health care as locally as possible.
I remember similar proposals from a meeting on 1 December 2005, and it'll be interesting to see how much has been carried over. At the time, the breakdown of trust between management and staff overshadowed the otherwise necessary review.
