Polytunnels for sea salt

Sea salt production could get underway on Grimsay if the Comhairle approves planning consent for the erection of three polytunnels at Kallin.

Applicant, Mr Duncan Griffiths, of Lochside, Hosta, is seeking permission to site the polytunnels in a 540 square metre area in the southwest corner of the Creel Yard Campsite.

In the 1980s, the Creel Yard Campsite was an HIE industrial estate that the applicant purchased in 2018. At that time, planning consent was obtained for three roundhouses, but the applicant built only one due to changes in the business climate.

The applicant states he now wishes to site polytunnels instead.
