In a document submitted to the Highland Council Planning Department, the Council's own Transport Planning Team objected to the proposed Springfield development at Lochloy. It is a fairly long document and regular observers of local planning matters may find it very interesting. Please see yesterday's article for more information and links etc.
An interesting paragraph appears re school catchment areas. In that document the Transport Planning Team state:
"It is understood that the current primary school catchment for this site will be Auldearn Primary, which would require the provision of transport to and from the school given the location of the site in relation to the school. Subject to this remaining the case, it is recommended that any permission granted is required to agree a suitable level of financial contribution towards the provision of such school transport services supporting this site. The amount and timing of such contributions should be agreed with the Public Transport Team to ensure that the funds can be used in time to provide the necessary services from when units start to become occupied."
