Lochmaddy could gain a new gift shop if planning permission is granted for the siting of a pre-converted steel cabin measuring 32ft x 10ft.

The applicant, Mrs Mairi MacDonald of Cairn Candles, is seeking permission to site the cabin beside her home at 1 Amhor, Lochmaddy, for use as a gift shop.

The cabin will occupy 29 square metres with the property’s existing boundaries.

Access to the site will be from the existing formed entrance from the A865 Sollas to Lochmaddy road.

An area suitable for access by the emergency services and a parking area will be formed on the east side of the shop.

The design of the prefabricated unit will offer a low impact solution to the site location and the prefabricated design is to ensure that the proposal will not have a detrimental effect on the special qualities of the area.

The exterior walls will be painted grey. Windows and exterior doors will be off white PVCu. A compliant access ramp and platform will complete the building.
