Meteorological mast

Spiorad Na Mara Limited has submitted a planning application for a 120-metre meteorological mast.

They are seeking planning consent to site the mast on Glebeland Farm, Upper Barvas, for three years.

Care home access

Planning consent is sought to create new vehicular access from Perceval Road to the Dun Eisdean care home at Westview, Stornoway.

The proposal includes altering the existing vehicular exit onto Westview Terrace to two-way and constructing additional parking.

Cemetery extension

The Bragar Cemetery Committee is seeking planning permission to extend the cemetery.

The proposal involves extending the cemetery by 0.135 hectares at the north end of the cemetery.
