Cawdor is identified in the Inner Moray Firth Local Development Plan 2 as a Growing Settlement. It is addressed at Placemaking Priorities 39. Future development of Cawdor is embraced where this achieves small scale infill and rounding off, and of redevelopment of brownfield sites with no heritage value. Considerations and limitations are to avoid areas at risk of flooding from the Cawdor Burn, whilst preserving and enhancing woodland and watercourses whilst delivering and enhancing active travel use, connections, and biodiversity including the A96 Landward Trail.
