Consultation about development options for sites around Lochinver
ADT have contracted Matt Bridgestock of John Gilbert Architects to carry out a design workshops project to explore development options for a number of sites around Lochinver.
Matt ran open workshop events on 24th and 25th April, looked round these sites and others, and has produced three initial sketches for possible development – one relatively modest, including 4 housing units and some enterprise/storage units, one more ambitious, with industrial units and a total of 7 housing units, and one which represents his ‘blue sky thinking’ as to a future vision of how land use including industry, commercial development and housing could exist in the area, maybe in 20+ years time.
We are now seeking feedback on these sketched visions.
The short online survey to give your opinions of Matt’s sketches is here:
Matt’s sketches are included in the survey, and shown below.
Please do use this opportunity to let us know your thoughts.
Matt Bridgestock will present more detailed development proposals, shaped by responses we receive to the initial sketches, at further events on 30th / 31st May, which will be advertised nearer the time.
This work is being funded by Scottish Government’s Making Places fund, Highland Council discretionary fund and Highlands & Islands Enterprise.
Pictures of the sites, along with descriptions and some ideas from Assynt residents so far, are available here, as a downloadable pdf.
