How is the North Highland Way going?

The Highland Council


‘the Council has neither the staff nor the financial resources to lead or be closely involved in every such initiative and as such will make decisions on which should be prioritised at any given time. In this case the North Highland Way is not one of the potential initiatives the Council has elected to take forward, preferring that such developments be led by interested parties at a local level.’  8th April 2019.  We have asked for all the minutes and agendas from the Sustainable Development Committee proving that this decision was made at Committee level.

We are now taking it forward at a local level, but THC are responsible for economic development, and should play their part.  There are a number of new employees in the tourism section.  Of course they want it taken at local level, so they don’t have to pay.  Two groups were set up, one a community group (the Dunnet Head Educational Trust) and a business group under LetsGoNorth.  Neither were supported by the Highland Council.  We want to know why.

Spent five years trying to extract information from me free of charge.  Lack of knowledge of economics is astounding, yet they will back NC500 and the damage the extra traffic has caused.
