Delnies Ghost Island proposal refused by Highland Council

Regular readers may remember the application by Cawdor Maintenance Trust which sought to replace the proposed roundabout to service the Delnies development with a simpler, ghost island priority junction. That application has been refused by Highland Council. The application received a number of objections including submissions from the Community Councils and the Residents Concern Group. 

The decision states on the Council's e-planning site:

"That the proposal is contrary to policies 17 and 28 of the Highland-wide Local Development Plan in that the proposed ghost island does not provide a satisfactory access to the Delnies site as the benefits the original roundabout to local residents and the wider population will not be achieved, thereby having a detrimental impact on community residential amenity."
