Have your say on plans for future
A NEW document outlining a 20-year plan for potential future development in Wester Ross, Lochalsh, Skye and Lochaber has been published by Highland Council.
The Proposed West Highland and Islands Local Development Plan, also known as WestPlan, has now gone out for an eight-week consultation.
The plan shows where and when future development could happen and the council wants anyone with an interest in the future of the area to have their say.
Tim Stott of the development plan team explained: ‘Identifying a site for development confirms the principle of development so it’s important people have their say on whether they agree with the sites identified.
‘Any development proposed would still require a planning application that would be consulted on separately. Typically sites are actually developed by either the landowner or a developer. In most cases it won’t be the council.’
The consultation closes at midday on Friday June 30. To view the plan and make any comments head to consult. highland.gov.uk. It can also be viewed at public and mobile libraries in the plan area.
