Tulloch Homes submits plans for 1,200 homes at Druid Temple Farm
Tulloch Homes has submitted a proposal of application notice to build a development of 1,200 homes, shops and a new primary school at the site of Druid Temple Farm and Welltown of Leys in Inverness.
The site is next to Milton of Leys, a large housing development which has grown extensively over the past 15 years.
Sandy Grant, managing director of Tulloch Homes, is asking for families searching for homes to get in touch, so they can help develop the plans.
He said: “The development has the potential for around 1,200 energy-efficient homes. It will provide significant contributions to local infrastructure and amenities.
“The proposals include ample green space and an area of land has been identified for a new school.”
Highland Council planner Craig Baxter said in November 2020 that this site was one of two representing a major expansion that “would move away from the established strategy for growing the city”.
The other was a plan for 800 homes on part of the former Fairways golf course in Slackbuie, The Press and Journal reports.
Mr Baxter added: “The slopes involved make it very difficult for active travel and a challenge to get an effective public transport system in place. There are also a range of issues to do with character and setting of the city.
“It could be adversely impacted if we were to allow large-scale development in these sites.”
