Interested parties are invited to participate in these events. The Webinar Event will enable a real time opportunity to replace the usual public event and will enable opportunities for real time questions and responses, and also offline communication if preferred. A session will be recorded, and comments and queries can be posted by way of the website for a further 30 days from the last event until Monday 24 August. Comments on the presentation and information on the website are also encouraged and can be made throughout the 12 week consultation period.

Comments should not be submitted to the Council at this time as they will not be taken into consideration. Statements made to the prospective applicant and their representatives are not representations to The Highland Council. If a planning application is subsequently submitted, then there will be an opportunity to make a direct representation to the Council at that time.
