Strathpeffer Housing Development gets go ahead!

Several mature trees will be felled and a “beautiful” beech hedge lining the main road into the village will have to come down to make way for the detached and semi-detached houses.

The development will be accessed via the existing driveway to Nutwood Road and a 30mph speed limit will be imposed on a stretch of the A834 road.

Planning officer Erika McArthur said the hedge would be replanted and the current access road would need to be completely reconstructed to accommodate the properties.

Strathpeffer is one of six areas earmarked to help protect Scottish wildcats from extinction!

Six areas of the north and north-east have been earmarked for special attention to help protect Scottish wildcats from extinction.

A study commissioned by Scottish Natural Heritage identified the Angus Glens, northern Strathspey, Strathavon, Strathpeffer, Morvern and Strathbogie around Huntly.

In each area examples of cats, many with typical wildcat features, were detected with many thought to be “good examples”.
