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.’

The con­sul­ta­tion can be found at https://con­sult. scot­land. gov. uk/ crown- es­tate-strat­egy- unit/ long-ter­mman­age­ment-of- the- crownes­tate and coun­cil­lor An­gus Campbell will hold a Face­book ques­tion-and-an­swer ses­sion in Fe­bru­ary.
