More time to comment on Landscape Appraisals to guide wind energy development
The deadline for commenting on The Highland Council’s draft Landscape Appraisals to help in the consideration of future proposals for wind energy development is drawing near – but has been extended to 31 January 2017.
Two landscape sensitivity appraisals are currently being consulted on: one for the Caithness study area and another covering The Black Isle, surrounding hills and Moray Firth Coast. They are the next two in a programme of appraisals for areas in Highland that are under pressure for wind energy development.
The easiest way to read and comment on the Draft Landscape Appraisals is through the Council’s consultation portal at consult.highland.gov.uk . Anyone without internet access can view a paper copy of the document at Service Points or Public Libraries in or near the areas covered by the landscape appraisals. Comments should be submitted via the portal wherever possible – comments by letter or email will not be accepted unless otherwise agreed in advance with the Development Plans Team. Anyone needing to request such arrangements, or with any other questions, may contact the Team by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone 01349 886608. Consultation on the two studies will now close on 31 January 2017.
