Isle of South Uist application - December 1

Change of plans

Planning consent is sought to make a material external change to a previously consented dwelling at 52A Balgarva, Eochar. The applicant is Mrs Angela Campbell, who was given planning permission to build the 563 square metre site in December 2019. The change concerns a new septic tank setup.

Change of use to community shop

South Uist could be on the way to getting a new community shop if planning consent is approved to change the use of a shed into retail premises.

The applicant, Ms Maria Farthing, wants to convert an existing shed at her home, Glebe Cottage, Daliburgh, into a small shop selling zero waste and eco-friendly cleaning products, toiletries, homeware, gifts and craft products. It is planned that the shop will act as a refilling point that promotes closed circuit recycling and have a click and collect capability.

There will also be a bike rack and parking for two or three vehicles.
