Skye & Raasay Investment Plan – put forward your climate positive projects

Highland Council and HIE are leading the development of an Investment Plan for Skye and Raasay.  A workshop on 28 January with key groups gathered initial views on the issues and areas that need to be tackled. See the presentation from the event here. Future events are planned and you can sign up to be kept informed at Skye.raasay@highland.gov.uk

The Investment Plan “aims to identify the different ‘parts’ that need to happen to achieve the place we want Skye and Raasay to be.  This could involve a wide variety of projects that deliver different benefits ranging from a community owned shop to  enhanced cycle network and new housing to harbour redevelopment.” There is already a list of projects here. 

This is a great opportunity to contribute your projects to the overall plan. They do not need to be fully designed. You only need to say how your project fits the priorities, which organisations need to be involved and next steps/ what is holding back the project. Fill in the form here

The priority outcomes are:

  • Sustainable tourism
  • Diverse and green economy
  • Digital and transport infrastructure
  • Strengthening communities
  • Health and education
The first section of the consultation asks for comments on the priorities. You can suggest other priorities, e.g. Healthy natural environment and protection of biodiversity, which are essential for economic development, as the recent Dasgupta report for the UK Treasury has confirmed.
