Holiday Park proposal for former Black Isle Wildlife Park
12 June 2019
A preliminary proposal has been made to Highland Council for the development of a large holiday park, including a 100 bed hotel, holiday chalets, camping pods and caravan and tent pitches, on the site of the former Black Isle Wildlife park at Drumsmittal.
A report on the proposal in the Press & Journal of 4 June quotes local councillor Gordon Adam as feeling that the early proposals represent over-development.
“The main thing is that a development of this nature should be in keeping with the Black Isle Tourism Team’s slow tourism strategy to encourage visitors to take their time, walk, cycle and linger in the beautiful area. A 100-bed hotel would look odd, incongruous and out of character on that site."
A public consultation session was held in Munlochy Village Hall on Thursday 13 June, and Councillor Craig Fraser has requested that a similar event be held in North Kessock.
More information and a feedback questionnaire can be found at Environment / Planning / Drumsmittal Holiday Park.
A copy of the preliminary application and a site plan can be downloaded from the 'Documents' tab of the relevant page on the Highland Council ePlanning website.
