Visitor centre refurbishment

Urras Oighreachd Charlabhaigh has requested planning permission to refurbish the Doune Broch Visitors Centre.

The proposed refurbishment includes extending the footprint with the existing roof overhang, new external finishes to the refurbished area and a new glazed entrance.

It is also proposed to update the existing public toilets and provide four overnight campervan spaces within the car park, with electric hookups, water taps, and chemical waste disposal.

The application states that there would be a policy of early campervan departures to free up car parking space.

Erect a polycrub

The Comhairle has received a prior notification submission regarding the erection of a polycrub at Fasgadh, Church Street, Borve.

The notification from Daniel M Taylor of the same address is for an 8 x 4-metre polycrub to grow vegetables for household use.

New parking area and path

Newmarket Gateway Trust has applied for planning permission to construct a new parking area and path for the Riverside Gardens playpark.

The proposal is to create 13 additional parking bays at the site and a new 1.8 metre-wide footpath opposite Bridge Cottages.
