The Council has put out the following press release
A special meeting of The Highland Council’s Inverness Nairn Badenoch and Strathspey Planning Applications Committee is to be held towards the end of October to determine the outstanding matters from the Inverness Campus proposal at Beechwood, Inverness. This follows a decision by the Committee to defer a decision at its meeting on Tuesday 30 August.
Stuart Black, the Council’s Director of Planning and Development, said: “The deferral of this matter by committee provides some time to discuss the outstanding concerns there are, particularly in relation to access. We recognise HIE’s aspiration to commence infrastructure works and deliver the first phase of the Campus project, but it’s also important that community views are taken fully into account. We know that HIE is planning further consultation and look forward to having positive discussions with the community over the next month.”
