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. As a result they constitute the Action Programmes which are statutory a requirement of the local development plan making process. 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 Delivery Programmes are now 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 latest Delivery Programme was published in March 2019 and has been updated with information on how and when key development and infrastructure projects will be implemented and which projects will be subject to developer contributions requirements.
Caithness and Sutherland Local Development Plan (CaSPlan)
The Delivery Programme for Caithenss and Sutherland was first published on 30 November 2018 following approval by the Sutherland County Committee on 15 November and Caithness Committee on 20 November. It was the first Delivery Programme to be published since CaSPlan was adopted by the Council on 31 August 2018 and provides information on how and when key development and infrastructure projects will be implemented and identifies which projects will be subject to developer contributions requirements. The Delivery Programme has since been updated to take account of the 2018/19 School Roll Forecast.
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.
Fort William 2040 (FW2040) is an ongoing project to plan, refine and implement a shared vision for the future of Fort William and Lochaber. It forms an important part of the future delivery of WestPlan and constitutes the Fort William component of WestPlan's Action Programme.
