Stratherrick and Foyers Community Council Chair Catriona Fraser led a discussion on the Equal Rights of Appeal Campaign at the Council’s January meeting.  The campaign is organised by ‘Planning Democracy’.

Catriona has received pre-printed postcards which members of the public can use to send to Members of the Scottish Parliament.  The card states ‘Currently developers have a right to appeal a planning decision, but communities who are affected by a development have no right of appeal.’

The postcards encourage MSP’s to build a stronger and fairer planning system by making a commitment to support equal rights of appeal – a have this right included in the new Planning Bill.

If you would like a copy of the Postcard please contact Catriona or email strathnews@sfctrust.org.uk
