The Delivery and Action Programmes set out the timescales and actions for the delivery of development and infrastructure for each of our local development plans. Their purpose is to provide information for identifying, monitoring and implementing the actions for delivering future growth in Highland. They also help to coordinate public services and other key stakeholders in improving and investing in our future communities.
The more recent Delivery Programme is aligned with the latest Housing Land Audit, which provides information on the forecasted phasing of new housing, and the School Roll Forecasts, which outline the anticipated changes to pupil rolls in primary and secondary schools in Highland.
Inner Moray Firth Local Development Plan (IMF LDP)
The Delivery Programme for the IMF LDP was published on 16 August 2018 and has been updated to provide the latest figures on housing delivery and clearer information on the timing and funding of development and infrastructure projects. It also now identifies which infrastructure projects will be subject to developer contributions requirements.
Caithness and Sutherland Local Development Plan (CaSPlan)
We prepared a draft Action Programme alongside the publication of the Modified Proposed CaSPlan in September 2016. The Action Programme must be completed and approved by the Area Committees within 3 months of the adoption of CaSPlan, which is expected to be in August 2018.
West Highland and Islands Local Development Plan (West Plan)
We prepared a draft Action Programme alongside the publication of the Proposed West Plan in May 2017. The Action Programme will be finalised following the adoption of West Plan, which is expected in 2019.
