The fair is being organised to showcase innovative designs
A building society has offered £15,000 to support a controversial show of innovative housing.
Scotland's Housing Expo - The Highland Housing Fair is to be held at Balvonie Braes, Inverness, in 2010.
Dunfermline Building Society's offer of sponsorship was announced at the latest meeting of the fair's board of directors in Inverness.
Complaints about how Highland Council handled the project were rejected by the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman.
In April 2008, two members of the public raised concerns with the SPSO about how outline planning was dealt with.
They said there had been inadequate consultation and permission for the site should not have been granted.
The SPSO declined to uphold 11 complaints and concerns about the council's handling of the application.
Housing Fair chairwoman Jean Urquhart said: "This is a great indication of the kind of support within the private sector for such a ground-breaking project.
"Dunfermline Building Society are one of the first to come forward showing great foresight to give money and support to the Housing Expo."
