Badenoch And Strathspey Section Of West Highland And Islands Local Plan

The Highland Council is to hold a public meeting at 7 p.m. on 14th April 2008 at Newtonmore Village Hall to consider the content of the West Highland and Islands Local Plan. 

Parts of the Badenoch & Strathspey ward which fall outwith the Cairngorms National Park boundary are covered by the West Highland & Islands Local Plan.  The Local Plan will be subject to an additional consultation period from May 2008, and the meeting gives local residents the opportunity to discuss with local councillors and officials from the Planning & Development Service whether the strategy of the Plan as it currently stands represents the aspirations of local communities.  In particular, discussions will take place on a reference in the Local Plan to the potential renewable energy locations set out in the Council’s Highland Renewable Energy Strategy and Planning Guidelines (May 2006). 

Copies of the Local Plan are available from the Council web-site, under Local Plans, or can be viewed at the following locations in the Badenoch and Strathspey ward area:
