Date lodged: 1 September 2016
To ask the Scottish Government whether the Scottish Ministers will call in any future planning application for a golf course at Coul Links in Sutherland for their determination, and what its position is on this matter.
Answered by: Kevin Stewart 20 September 2016
Ministers do have the power to call in any undetermined planning application. However, as I am sure you will appreciate, as there is no current planning application, it would be inappropriate for Ministers to comment on the merits of call in at this stage as that could potentially prejudice any future involvement they may have.
