This blog was created due to the Highland Council and Highlands and Islands “Enterprise” not backing the development of the North Highland Way, despite the community and the businesses wanting it. There is just one man in the Highland Council blocking this project and he has tried all kinds of tactics to stop it going ahead. One can only wonder why.
Ask the Director of Planning and Infrastructure and Infrastructure in the Highland Council why he gave the writer a letter of support in 2008 saying that the Highland Council would back the project and then reneged on the promise. Nor will he explain why the author and her partner didn’t get the log cabins when they should have (they said there was no application!), why they would not audit the books of the Brough Bay Association when they received £50,000 of public money, and most of all why is he backing the NC500 when it increases his road maintenance budget. The money was provided by Highlands and Islands Enterprise, now that same “Enterprise” wants a rocket on Peatbog.
