Highland Wide Local Development Plan

"The Highland wide Local Development Plan will update and replace parts of the Highland Structure Plan as well as parts of existing Local Plans which cover strategic policy issues. It will set out:
the spatial strategy and vision for the area;
clear policy guidance for development of all types (including reference to Supplementary Guidance where appropriate); 
the development principles of key action areas (including the A96 Corridor).

The preparation of this new Local Development Plan will assist with the delivery of economic development for the area, whilst making sure that the quality of the built environment in Highland matches that of the natural environment."

Local Transport Strategy
The consultation on The Highland Council’s local transport strategy is now underway and members of the public have until Friday 11 December to respond to this important document which sets out how the transport system will be developed in the Highland area over the next three years. Following a pre-consultation last winter with public meetings throughout the Highlands, the draft local transport strategy has been finalised.
The consultation document details the key issues that influence the provision of transport and explains the main challenges.  A series of objectives have been developed along with policies designed to assist in achieving these objectives.  The Council’s programme for investment in transport is also set out in the document.  Key to delivering progress will be partnership working with other agencies.
