Tore Community Consultation Events

The Proposed Development – An Opportunity to Comment

Springfield Properties PLC invites members of the local community to attend a pre-planning application public consultation events regarding its draft proposals for development at Tore. The public consultation events have been arranged to provide a forum for the general public and any other interested parties to make comments in respect of our proposals, prior to the formal submission of an application for planning permission to Highland Council.  

The Consultation Events: 

On 16th September 2021 we hosted a virtual consultation event between the hours of 4pm and 7pm to hear directly from the community on our plans for Tore.  Three separate presentations were arranged to offer flexibility.  At 4pm, 5pm and 6pm our team ran through a short presentation and were then on hand to answer any questions. A follow up presentation was held on the 21st of October 2021.

An additional consultation event was held on 3rd of February from 4pm to 7pm.

Feedback

All comments should have been submitted by Friday 25th of February 2022 in order that such comments can be considered by the prospective applicant before the submission of a formal planning application. 

 

The next steps:

  • Following conclusion of these public consultation events, comments will be comprehensively assessed and reviewed. These will be taken into consideration in preparing a detailed application for planning permission;
  • The collective comments from these public consultation events will be included in a Pre-Planning Application Public Consultation Report which will accompany the application for planning permission to be submitted to Highland Council.  Such a document is a statutory requirement of the planning application process.
  • The planning application will also be accompanied by a Design & Access Statement, a Supporting Planning Statement, a Transportation Assessment, an Ecological Appraisal, an Archaeological Written Scheme of Investigation, Noise Assessment, a Site Investigation Report and a Site Drainage Strategy. 

Please note, comments made to the prospective Applicant do not constitute representations to the Planning Authority.  A further opportunity to make representations to Highland Council will be available following formal submission of the planning application.
