Comhairle nan Eilean Siar is seeking local option from Newton residents in Stornoway as the authority’s Regeneration Team host a public consultation next week.
Chairman of Sustainable Development at the Comhairle, Donald Crichton, said: “I would encourage local residents and businesses in the Newton area to come along and view the potential developments in the area.
“The Regeneration Team, developers and other stakeholders are working collaboratively to seek funding in order to regenerate former mill buildings and bring them back into productive use and create jobs.”

The Comhairle has been working with local property developers in order to progress an application to the Scottish Government’s Regeneration Capital Grand Fund – and developers have plans for expansion, business creation, and support local job creation.
Members of the public are invited to come along to the consultation event to view present plans, meet with potential developers, and have meaningful input into the area’s regeneration.
The Regeneration Team public consultation will be held in the Community Rooms, Newton, on Seaforth Road, Stornoway, from 3pm to 7pm on Monday, December 4th.
