Black Isle Local Place Plan consultation goes online

18 March 2023




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 . .


Nick Wright, planner and facilitator for the Black Isle Local Place Plan, writes

At eight community events across the Black Isle in March, over 250 people shared over 1,700 suggestions for the future of the Black Isle: about housing, facilities, services, transport, jobs, the environment and more.

If you weren't able to come to an event, now it's your turn!  Take the survey to tell us your priorities for the future.

Click on this link to complete the survey, find out more about the plan, and see the display boards shared at the events.  You can also see the suggestions received so far. They're fascinating!

We don't yet know what will be in this new community-led plan.  We need your views to tell us what the priorities should be.  

We'll keep you posted about the next stages in the spring and summer to share the results, explore solutions to tackle your priorities, and draft the plan. 

You and your neighbours, family and friends can sign up to receive  this and future bulletins  here.
