    Council Register of Assets (Moray). Section 94 of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 (the Act) requires public authorities to make available to members of the public a register of land that it owns or leases “to the best of its knowledge and belief”. The purpose of the register is to help Community Transfer Bodies identify assets that may be available through asset transfer under Part 5 of the Act. The inclusion of an asset on the register is a requirement of the Act and does not necessarily imply that the Council is actively seeking to transfer that asset to the community.

    The five main towns of Elgin, Forres, Buckie, Keith and Lossiemouth are subject to the highest development pressures and Countryside Around Towns (CAT’s) have been designated to prevent development sprawl into the countryside. Only certain types of development are appropriate within CAT’s to protect their special character. New housing development is specifically excluded from the types of acceptable development to maintain and preserve the distinction with the built up area.

    Areas of Greatest Potential. Scottish Planning Policy states that planning authorities “should identify where there is strategic capacity for wind farms, and areas with the greatest potential for wind development”. Areas of greatest scope for further investigating the feasibility of developing wind farms. These areas have been identified on Policy Guidance maps by removing additional constraints from the spatial framework map of the areas likely to be most appropriate for wind farm development. The remaining areas which have been mapped for each development typology are the areas with the fewest constraints and therefore the greatest potential for wind farm developments.
