Skye and Raasay Investment Plan

Preparation of the new plan

Representatives from key groups and communities on Skye and Raasay are being encouraged to participate in the preparation of a new Skye and Raasay Investment Plan. This work, which is being led by the Council in conjunction with HIE, aims to engage and represent all those with an interest in the future of the area. It aims to coordinate how the wide range of organisations and groups operating in the area invest together and maximise the impacts and benefits. The Investment Plan will identify the top priorities for Skye and Raasay and provide a joint portfolio of actions and responsibilities to help improve the prospects of securing future funding.

We have launched an online consultation to allow people to share their views on the priorities for the area and for interested parties to provide further information on their projects. The consultation will be open during the engagement process and the comments we receive will be used to help inform future events and shape the content of the Investment Plan.     

Comment on the Investment Plan

An initial workshop was held on 28 January with key groups to launch the process of preparing a new Investment Plan for the area. The workshop, which was attended by over 60 people that are actively involved in delivering improvements in the area, was intended to gather initial views on the issues and areas that need to be tackled. The presentation from the event can use viewed below:

Although COVID-19 restrictions introduced at the turn of the year have forced a change to the approach to engagement, a series of events are scheduled to take place during the first few months of 2021.

We will continue to add information to this webpage when it becomes available.
