Council to consult on area of undeveloped land in Inverness

The Highland Council has launched a Common Good consultation regarding a proposal to dispose of an area of 2145m² of undeveloped land in Inverness.

The area of land is a triangular parcel of land lying between 17 Longman Drive and a neighbouring electricity substation site. It does not have vehicular access and only restricted pedestrian access. It has been assessed as deriving title from the Royal Charter of Inverness of King James VI and, as such, is considered to be Common Good land.

The existing tenants of 17 Longman Drive have applied to change the use of the land to commercial use in connection with their business.

Brandon Landscaping Limited has approached the council seeking to lease the undeveloped parcel of land and incorporate it into its existing lease of 17 Longman Drive. This proposal would see this previously unused and undeveloped area of land being taken into commercial use and becoming income generating for the benefit of Inverness Common Good fund.

Full details of the proposal are contained in the consultation document. The council is keen to hear the community’s views on the proposal and all submissions will be given full regard before a decision on whether to proceed is made.

The Inverness community has until 23 June to respond.
