Highland Council is consulting local residents over a plan to site a ‘seafood shack’ on Common Good land at Dornoch Links.
Ewan Chisholm wants to lease around 256 square metres of land, located around 168 metres south west of the beach car park and next to a passing place on a short-term basis for a takeaway food van.
Under the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015, the authority is required to consult the local community when considering disposing of, or changing the use of Common Good assets.
Mr Chisholm is a director of Balintore based Chisholm Sporting Ltd, which offers hunting and sporting activities.
He gave a presentation to Dornoch Community Council on his plan at its July meeting when he said his main aim was to promote locally sourced seafood and game.
He said he saw his main market as beach users such as dog walkers as well as families and holidaymakers at the nearby caravan and camping park.
Councillors discussed issues such as access, parking and recyclable packaging. They were generally in favour but said at that point that they would like more information.
The consultation runs until December 9 and for further information, visit www.highland.gov.uk and search for Dornoch Links food van.
