Public exhibitions, 4-6 September 2017
We will host a series of public exhibition events to share proposals for construction work at the Skye triangle ports of Tarbert (Harris), Uig and Lochmaddy.
The public exhibitions will take place:
Uig Community Centre, Uig, Skye
Monday 4th September 2017, 16.00-19.00hrs
Harris Hotel, Tarbert, Harris
Tuesday 5th September 2017, 16.00-19.00hrs
Lochmaddy Village Hall, North Uist
Wednesday 6th September 2017, 16.00-19.00hrs
These are open sessions and people are welcome to drop in any time between 16.00 and 19.00hrs.
The events are a follow-up to the public meetings held in April this year and they will allow local communities and other interested parties to comment on proposals at an early stage, before final applications for the works at each port are submitted. The events also form part of the application process for the required marine licences for works at the ports.
Comments can be provided at the events or afterwards in writing to CMAL or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 29th September 2017. Additional public events will be carried out prior to the submission to the Marine Scotland Licensing Operations Team, offering a further opportunity to provide comments.
Please note, comments made at this stage are not representations to the Scottish Ministers. Once Marine Licence Applications have been submitted there will be an opportunity for representations to be made to the Scottish Ministers on the application.
Public meetings 3-5 April 2017
Public meetings were held in Uig, Tarbert and Lochmaddy on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of April 2017 respectively.
