Broadford is set to have a new primary school campus by 2021.

The proposed site is adjacent to the current school and located beyond the football pitch.

It is also planned to include a community hub. 

A meeting on a new return scheme for reducing waste will come to Skye.

Zero Waste Scotland will be sharing information on Scotland’s Deposit Return Scheme, an attempt to reduce waste by returning empty drinks cans and bottles.

Under the scheme, people will pay a 20p deposit when buying drinks purchased in single-use plastic or glass bottles and aluminium or steel cans. People will get their money back when they return their empty container for recycling.

The draft regulations laid before the Scottish Parliament in September include a target of capturing 90% of all scheme containers. Achieving that means making the scheme accessible and practical for everyone in Scotland.

Road safety in Carbost will be the subject of a meeting on Friday 18 October.

Representatives from Police Scotland, Highland Council and residents from Carbost will gather to discuss ways to improve road safety in the west Skye village.

Kate Forbes MSP organised the roundtable meeting to seek constructive ways forward following local concerns. One person who met with the Skye MSP, was hit by a passing vehicle.
