A planning application has been submitted to Highland Council to build holiday lodges at Wester Lochloy.

An application for holiday lodges and a manager's house for a site west of Northview, Wester Lochloy, has been lodged with Highland Council planners.

The proposal seeks planning in principle for short term let tourist accommodation.

Documents lodged with the department state the development will comprise five, two bedroom lodges with an open plan living area with ancillary kitchen and shower room facilities.

The lodges are situated adjacent to the proposed access road and each has a dedicated parking and outdoor seating area.

The lodges are designed to be single storey with a timber finish and glazed area to the front with access to the decked seating area set into the landscape with most of the existing woodland retained to provide a setting for the development.

There is no publicly available sewer and drainage will by means of a private system, designed for the site and with adequate land to accommodate the soakaway system.

Surface water will be dealt with by means of proprietary systems designed to deal with rainwater from the roof and areas of hardstanding. The drainage systems and soakaway will be designed to ensure there is no discharge of surface water from the site or onto adjacent properties.

The proposed house, to be occupied by the manager of the tourist facility, will be located within the boundaries of the application site and located to the south of the lodges and generally central to the site, similarly retaining woodland to the east and west of the site.

As an application in principle, the design of the house will be reserved for future consideration, but it is proposed to be a 1.5 storey house of traditional proportions and material finishes together with dedicated parking facilities.

It is proposed that the woodland will be managed in accordance with Forest Scotland requirements.

The application is under consideration.
