A HANDFUL of appointments were made at a meeting of the full Shetland Islands Council on Wednesday.
Lerwick member Cecil Smith was appointed chairman of the licensing committee and board after Ian Scott resigned in September.
South Mainland’s Allison Duncan was made vice-chair of the development committee following Stephen Leask’s resignation, where he will be joined by Robbie McGregor.
A place on the policy and resources committee went to a vote after John Fraser and Stephen Leask were both nominated as Lerwick North’s representative.
In a secret ballot Leask secured 12 votes to Fraser’s eight.
Shetland Central member Davie Sandison was also appointed to the policy and resources committee.
As previously reported Moraig Lyall has also been appointed to the Shetland Windfarm Environmental Advisory Group.
