The Highland Council’s Badenoch and Strathspey Area Committee have agreed a new set of Local Priorities for the Ward.
The 35 point priorities plan comes under five headings: a place to live, a place to learn, a place to thrive, a welcoming place, and a redesigned council.
It seeks to create an affordable place to live and work, bolster education, promote economic regeneration, encourage year-round tourism and integrate communities into decision making.
At the heart of the priorities is how best to use the environment while making the most of developments while keeping schools stocked and developing education.
Councillor Bill Lobban Chair of the Area Committee said: “We will continue to build on the Council’s localism agenda and make sure we make decisions locally wherever possible.”
The priorities will be promoted among the wider Council membership and will also be aligned with the Council’s Programme for 2017-22.
Committee members noted that there will be opportunity to consider wider shared priorities over the Council’s term.
That will be done through the development of the local community partnership and engagement with community bodies and communities
Further work will be done this year to identify how the local priorities can be supported by staff and other Council resources.
