Comhairle Invites Applications of Interest for Surplus Topsoil

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar is inviting all expressions of interest within the Western Isles in relation to surplus unscreened topsoil arising from the Goathill development, Stornoway, Isle of Lewis. 

An Application Form should be completed and applicants should provide a clear description of intended use, location, quantity sought, confirmation of land ownership status, and any requirement for planning permission.  

Although there will be no charge for the raw material, there will be a small Administration and Loading Fee.  The material is currently stockpiled at the Comhairle’s Bennadrove Landfiill site.

The Comhairle will manage and operate the loading procedure and will provide the necessary labour and plant for this at Bennadrove.  However, successful applicants will require to make their own arrangements for pick-up and delivery of the material and meet all associated haulage costs. 

Applicants are responsible for checking the towing capacity, weight restrictions and general fitness of all vehicles, trailers, plant and equipment which they will use for collection of topsoil.
