Two New Inverness Developments to Go Under the Spotlight Next Tuesday

Posted by Ross Jones-Morris in

On Tuesday two huge new schemes in Inverness might be given the go-ahead by planners as Inverness Properties and Tulloch Homes look to 'regenerate the city centre'.

The plans involve a 100-bed block by Inverness Properties at a site on Rose Street and a 60 apartment accommodation block by Tulloch Homes in Glebe Street. The Rose Street plans would involve the demolition of a two-storey car park and Rose Street Hall, yet it's the Glebe Street development that is courting the most controversy.

The 60 two bedoom apartments would be set across 7 storeys that would occupy the site of an old swimming pool, which has been out of use since 1997. However 5 formal objections have been submitted in anticipation of this Tuesday's hearing, including one from the Inverness Civic Trust who have raised concerns about the height of the development.

Despite these criticisms, planning officials have recommended that both projects be approved.
