CHARGES for letting a school after hours or at weekends is to increase by 10 per cent from April 1.

Schools are regularly used for fitness classes, sports activities, charity and community events, celebrations and meetings of uniformed groups.

The decision to increase the charges was made at last month's Highland Council budget meeting to help plug a £20 million funding gap in 2017/18.

The rise is expected to generate nearly £30,000 in additional income this year.
