Lochcarron Development Plan. Preparation of the proposed community engagement exercise, aimed at gathering and analysing data to provide a fair focus of prioritised projects for the whole community to cover the period 2020-2025 is almost complete and we hope it will shortly be underway. The process will include a household survey, analysing engagement responses and delivering the key results to the community in the form of a summary document. Thereafter, projects prioritised for development will proceed to the next phase.
