The Scottish Government have over-ruled the Reporter who conducted a Public Inquiry regarding the Tennis/Housing plan at Park of Keir. Another example of their undermining the integrity of the planning system. Coul links does have SSSI status, unlike PoK, but the Scottish Government seem determined to ignore planning rules and local democracy when they see potential economic development. If things do not change it will be irrelevant if Highland Council refuses planning, the developer will appeal to SG and they will have their way. Their proposed Planning Bill only makes centralised decision making more likely, so easing the path of future speculative developments on our countryside.
