The Skyetime Podcast – Janette Sutherland – SAC Consulting
In the latest episode of the Skyetime Podcast, Simon Cousins talks to Janette Sutherland of SAC Consulting in Portree. Janette is involved in two collaborative projects with SkyeConnect.
Janette is involved in two collaborative projects with SkyeConnect.
The first, thanks to a grant of £7700 from NatureScot through the ‘Better Places Green Recovery Fund, involves a feasibility study into creating a ‘Skye Foundation’ to provide visitor information about land management on Skye with a view to encouraging voluntary donations that will, in turn, fund projects to protect, preserve and restore Skye’s landscape.
The second project is providing information for Crofters considering creating Motorhome stop-over pitches on their land. This information will include everything from planning issues to the infrastructure required to dispose of wastewater from Motorhomes. The project is funded by the University Innovation Fund from the Scottish Funding Council.
After listening to the Podcast, anyone with a question can contact Janette directly by email – email@example.com
