Completion of another stretch of footpath and cycle lane at Inverness campus has been approved by Highland Council planners.

Work on the pathway and bridge section stretching alongside plots seven to 14 at the University of the Highlands and Islands complex had been delayed since 2020 during ongoing discussions over future development at the site.

Permission was also granted for a temporary roadway to cross the path to enable works’ and construction vehicles access for future site development.

A Highland Council access officer had objected to the plan on the grounds that it appeared to form a permanent peripheral haul road, but planning officials approved the Highlands and Islands Enterprise application on the condition that permission was temporary, through to June 2027.

From that date, the site would be fully restored as an active travel path.
