People living in the area around a planned £80million fish feed plant on Skye are being given the opportunity to comment on the proposal at drop-in sessions next month.

The proposed Marine Harvest plant at Kyleakin quarry would create 55 full-time, permanent jobs.

The project follows the successful development of a similar facility in Norway.

The Skye plant would serve Scotland, Ireland, Norway and the Faroes, and the company is confident it will provide a significant boost for the local economy – as was the case in Norway.

Marine Harvest managing director Ben Hadfield said: “Our feed plant at Bjugn has been hugely beneficial for the local community there, providing well paid jobs, and generating further employment with suppliers and contractors.”
