Inverness riverside platform work is on hold
WORK on the controversial structure in the city's Bank Street is subject to a risk assessment.
Local government democracy campaigner Christine MacLean had queried a lack of planning application for the platform, only to be told it was not required for a structure of this type.
She told the Inverness Courier: “I find it amazing that no separate planning permission was required for a structure which surely has health and safety and accessibility concerns.”
In response to a query from the Courier a Highland Council spokeswoman said it is now considering planning advice provided during the River Ness flood works construction in 2015 “in the light of the current context, taking into account risk and accessibility assessments and other new guidance”.
She added: “A report detailing advice and any recommended options will be provided to members for further consideration prior to the Rest Space project progressing to the next stage.”
