Highlanders have say on community future

Chairman of the Forum, Councillor Drew Hendry, commented: “It is vital that people understand the importance of the Highland Wide Local Development Plan and take the opportunity to consult on it. This plan will affect how local plans are developed and will affect tings that will ultimately happen in your neighbourhood.”

Malcolm Macleod, Development Plans Manager from the Council’s Planning and Development Service, will be attending the Ward Forum to find out what local people think the main issues are over the next 20 years will be and to explain more about how the Highland-wide Local Development Plan will be used to address these.

The new Northern Constabulary Area Commander for Inverness, Chief Inspector Andrew Maclean is also to attend to discuss issues of community safety.  There is also a 20-minute open question and answer slot. 

The meeting takes place at the Town house, Inverness, and begins at 7.00pm with doors open at 6.30pm
