New housing scheme proposed for Highland village

Plans for 22 new houses in Dornoch have been lodged as part of Highland Council’s community action plan.

The local authority wants to build the affordable properties on greenfield land in the heart of the Elizabeth Crescent “ring”, to the east of the village.

The development would be a mix of three bedroom villas and one and two-bedroom bungalows.

There would also be paths linking to the centre of Dornoch and the existing playpark.

The land has been identified as suitable for social housing, with a capacity of 40 properties, in the local development plan.

A Highland Council spokesman said: “The planned development will provide high-quality modern affordable homes for Dornoch. These attractive, energy efficient homes will enhance the housing options available in the local area.”

The cul-de-sac style development forms part of the Caithness and Sutherland local development plan (CaSPlan) which sets out the council’s vision and long-term strategy for the area over the next 20 years.

By 2035, the council is aiming to provide a total of 620 affordable homes across the two regions, with 272 based in Caithness and the remaining 348 located in Sutherland.

Local councillor Jim McGillivray said: “This development has been some time in the planning and is now a very welcome addition to the Dornoch portfolio of housing.

“An area has also been set aside for community development and that will be particularly useful in the fullness of time.”
