Working together to shape the future of our area.

Local Place Plans (LPPs) are community-led plans setting out proposals for the development and use of land and buildings. The Scottish Government has introduced LPPs as a way for local communities to think about how to make their place better, to agree priorities, and to work with others, including public authorities and other public sector bodies, to take action for change.

During 2024 Broadford & Strath Community Company are working with Broadford & Strath Community Council to coordinate a Local Place Plan for Broadford & Strath. Supported by other community representatives we are holding consultation events and activities to invite views on land use and priorities in our area. These include ‘Place Plan Pop-up’ drop in sessions, an online survey, meetings with local organisations, and activities with local pupils and youth groups.

On the basis of these finding we will produce a draft plan for review by the community, Highland Council and elected members.  The final plan will be submitted to the Highland Council in September 2024.


This work has been made possible through a grant from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, with match funding from Broadford & Strath Community Company.  The timeline for producing the Local Place Plan is as folllows

  • April: Funding confirmation
  • May: Planning
  • May/June: Public engagement including in person meetings and online / paper surveys
  • June: Public engagement and Local Place Plan drafted following consultation
  • July/August: DRAFT Local Place Plan shared with Community, Highland Council and elected members for review
  • August: Finalise Local Place Plan following review
  • September: Local Place Plan ready to be submitted to Highland Council by 27 September
