On Thursday, 5 April The Highland Council launched a public consultation on the Main Issues Report which will be used to inform the preparation of the Inner Moray Firth Local Development Plan. The consultation will last for 12 weeks and follows the lead set by the Highland-wide Local Development Plan to address local issues.
The Main Issues Report sets out a number of initial options for where development should and should not occur within the Inner Moray Firth area, which includes Muir of Ord and District, and how to address a number of other issues affecting the area. The Main Issues Report includes a number of sites submitted for consideration by communities, landowners and developers during the Council’s “Call for Sites” exercise undertaken in early 2011.
A drop-in public exhibition is being held on Wednesday, 18 April 2012 between 2 pm and 6.30 pm in the Pavilion, by the Bowling Green. This will be followed by a seperate round table discussion which is open to all residents, landowners and developers. Planning officials will be on hand to discuss any issues, and gather feedback. If you wish to attend this evening event please contact The Highland Council on 01463 702259 for details.
The Main Issues Report is available to read online following this link. It is also available at every public library, Highland Council Service Point, area Planning & Building Standards office within the Inner Moray Firth area and at Council Headquarters, Glenurquhart Road, Inverness.
