The forum commenced with an introduction by President Jim Parnell on how it was going to be run, which was followed by a presentation by Secretary Maria Pickles on the Executive Committee’s views on the geographical area that should be covered by the constitution and the reasons why.

To all and sundry, let it be known that the current NACRA/NACCAi Executive did not create the current situation with constitution.  We inherited it -  Let me repeat that – We did not cause the current situation – previous/past leadership of NACRA are responsible.

These attacks on my fellow members need to cease.

Maria Pickles as well as secretary of  NACRA/NACCAi , is on the Hall committee, the garden group, attends the SARG group meetings with local council on the Cove’s behalf and is heavily involved in conservation in the Cove.

The Special Resolution for the new constitution for NACCAi that was scheduled to be voted on at at 10am on Saturday 8 February has been withdrawn.

I have done this because there has been quite a deal of community discussion and concern regarding some of the clauses in that draft. I decided that the best approach was to withdraw the Special Resolution and instead use the time allocated to hold a forum to discuss what members would like to see in the new constitution.

We will be seeking to get agreement on the key aspects that should be...

The biggest change embodied in the revised constitution proposed at last December’s chaotic community meeting, was to open up membership of NACCA (ex NACRA) to the much larger community of NAC rural landowners.

I voted in favour of this change. I knew and trusted those who were appointed to rewrite the constitution and I decided that, if this is what our community really wants - well, so be it. Why shouldn’t the rural landowners share the benefits of our association - and everyone else for that matter?

I have just read the latest rewrite by the new (self-appointed...
