Views sought on estate proposals
COMHAIRLE nan Eilean Siar is encouraging the public to respond to the Scottish Government’s consultation on Crown Estate proposals which ends on March 29.
Comhairle leader Councillor Angus Campbell said: ‘ We would repeat our calls for the Scottish Government to devolve Crown Estate powers to local authorities, as set out in the recommendations of the Smith Commission. I would encourage all islanders to give a clear message they want and expect these rights.’
