Highland Council principal planner Tim Stott has made some policy comments on the webpages associated with the Upland Developments application for the bus station. Here's his conclusion:
"In conclusion, I would suggest that the owner be advised to talk to the Council and other adjoining owners to broker a more suitable, collective and properly serviced regeneration package for this part of the wider town centre. A submission through the Inner Moray Firth Local Development Plan process (rather than the current full planning application) would be the way to achieve this. "
Lots more interesting policy comments on the web page (as usual, once there, click on documents and scroll down to the item dated 28th of October.)
