Response to Comhairle's Local Development Plan Review & associated review of Supplementary Guidance for Wind Energy Development May 2015

The Western Isles Council (Comhairle) Call for Issues for the Comhairle’s Local Development Plan Review and associated review of the Supplementary Guidance for Wind Energy Development sets out a vision and spatial strategy for the development of land in the Islands over the next 10-20 years, and is reviewed every five years.

In our response to this important consultation, we talk about the importance of the need to integrate recent Scottish Government policy decisions about wild land and, specifically, the Scottish Natural Heritage Wild Land Areas map and increased peatlands protection, into the Local Development Plan.
