The application comprises nearly 80 separate documents, including a main report running to 378 pages.

The £8.5million link road will involve the construction of a new road bridge over the Inverness-Aberdeen railway line.
It will link Edgar Road with the A96 where a new junction will be created at Sheriffmill and create the necessary infrastructure for existing, new and future housing development in the south of Elgin.
A Moray Council spokesman said: "As befits a project of this magnitude and importance, the suite of documents which make up the application contain a huge amount of detail.
"The link road plans have been modified following extensive public consultation"
It s anticipated that the application will go before elected members for consideration later this year.
