In relation to the agenda and papers circulated for the above Meeting of the Highland Council, please find below additional recommendation in regard to Item 16 on the agenda:-


Scheme of Delegation – Proposed Amendment
Sgeama Tiomnaidh – Atharrachaidhean a Thathar a Moladh

The Council is asked to agree the following additional amendment to the Scheme of Delegation –

Part IV – Powers Delegated to Officers - Development and Infrastructure - Applications where the Appointed Officer exercises their discretion and requests that a decision is made by the relevant Planning Applications Committee

Inclusion of the following wording at the end of current Section (m)

For the avoidance of doubt, this discretion may not be exercised where Members of Highland Council for the Ward(s) in which the development is proposed, having been given prior notification under sub section (k) of the recommendation of refusal, have not by majority requested in writing within 5 working days of such notification that the application be referred to the relevant Planning Applications Committee.

It is intended to re-order the various sections within this part of the Scheme whereby the current Section (m) as above will become Section (j) and the existing Sections (j) to (l) will be re-numbered accordingly.

Yours sincerely

Michelle Morris
Depute Chief Executive/Director of Corporate Development
