What would happen if planning permission wasn't granted for the whole scheme? For example just the affordable housing and the workshops.
Will the houses have decent sized gardens so that the owners will be able to grow their own vegetables and live sustainably?
I feel quite passionate about repeopling the Highlands, although it doesn't really fit in with re-wilding very well, my dream is to see a mosaic of small crofting communities with species rich hay and pasture fields set in a mosaic of extensively cattle grazed moor and woodland. The aim being to provide and sell fresh local produce, so reducing air miles and the carbon footprint. Three quarters of the stock (veg, fruit (in season) meat and fish) in the Co-op in Freshwater on the Isle of Wight is from local farms, it is excellent and I'm sure Drum could lead the way too.
