The Highland Council Access Strategy 2008-2011 has followed the model of the second Community Plan for Highland 2004-2007. The Access Strategy provides the overarching strategic framework and the context under which the six Core Path Network Plans for Highland nest.
The Strategy is based on the following Vision:
- To provide access opportunities which reflect local character and provide clear economic, environmental and social benefits compatible withthe themes of the Community Plan.
- To encourage local communities and access user groups to work with land managers and occupiers in the development of better facilites to support and sustain the rural economy.
- To develop a comprehensive access network for a wider range of user abilities and interests.
- To remove barriers and build links so that everyone is able to enjoy and explore the Highlands to the best of their ability.
A Strategic Environmental Assessment was undertaken for the Strategy. Copies of these documents can be viewed by clicking the links below:
