Airport business park gets go-ahead

19 January 10 13:54 GMT

Councillors have granted planning permission to a new business park at Inverness Airport by 10 votes to five.

Two community councils objected to the development, which will be built in phases over 50 years.

Go-ahead was given by Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey planning committee.

Croy and Culloden Community Council said it had been promised a hearing before the application went before councillors for a decision.

Ardersier and Petty Community Council also objected to the plans.

Councillors decided last month to visit the site before taking a decision on the planning application.
