A prior notification and prior approval notice has been submitted to the Comhairle for an agricultural building at 5 Quidinish.

The applicant, Heather Williamson, of the same address, wishes to erect a grey-coloured 10-metre x 8-metre box profile building for use as a workshop and store.


Forestry application

Scottish Forestry has submitted a consultation document to the Comhairle regarding a proposed forestry development at Scaladale.

The 1.46-hectare development on Ardvourlie Common Grazings is to stabilise the banks of Abhainn Sgaladail and benefit biodiversity, particularly migratory Atlantic salmon and sea trout.

The proposed site, approximately 500m upriver from the A859 at Scaladale, is linked with a separate forestry development proposed by North Harris Trust on the opposite river bank.

According to Scottish Forestry, the plan is to plant native riparian woodland comprising 35% Common Alder, 35% Downy Birch, 20% Eared and Grey Willow, 4% Aspen, 3% Rowan, and 3% Hazel.


Erect an extension 

Planning permission is sought to erect a one-and-a-half-storey extension to the property at 24 Northton.

The applicant, Sue Ward, of the same address, told the Comhairle that the extension is to create a new bedroom suite and an open plan living area on the first floor. It is also proposed to demolish the existing entrance porch and erect a new entrance porch.
