Black Isle Local Place Plan

18 March 2023



Becky Richmond, Project Manager for the Black Isle Local Place Plan, has written about the programme of village consultation meetings through which Black Isle people will help to formulate the plan.



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.


The aim of the plan is to provide a Black Isle wide vision for the future.  It will build on existing consultations and surveys and over the next few weeks we will be consulting with communities across the Black Isle to find out what your priorities for the Black Isle might be.  There will be eight drop-in events held in Community Council areas across the Black Isle, where we’ll be seeking your views.


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 . .
