BI Local Place Plan local consultation - Munlochy

22 March 2023

Starts: 16:30
Ends: 18:30

Wednesday 22 March   4.30 - 6.30     Munlochy Hall

This is one of a series of drop-in consultations about the Black Isle Local Place Plan - Your opportunity to help create a Black Isle that we are proud to call home.  A Black Isle fit for future generations.

What do you want the Black Isle and your communities to be like in the future? What are the changes you would like to see?  What kind of voice do we want to have . .

Your answers will give you and your Community Councils real influence over the future of your community, because they will be the basis of the Black Isle Local Place Plan - a new feature of Scottish planning legislation that influences Council planning policy and public services.  To achieve that, the first stage is for you to tell us what really matters to your communities. Please drop in at one of the March events for a chat and a cuppa.
