Krispy Kreme is eyeing up an Inverness High Street site.

Listed building consent has been approved for an Inverness site targeted by popular doughnut firm Krispy Kreme.

Highland Council officials have given the nod to changes at 60 High Street, which is a category B listed premises.

But a decision is still to be made regarding a planning application lodged with the council for the erection of fascia and projecting signs showing the name of the business above the door.

If given the go-ahead, it looks set to fill vacant premises next to Market Brae Steps, which were formerly used by Commercial Bank of Scotland.

The application, from Callander-based agent WD Harley, states its intention to have the signage in place for at least 15 years.

A design statement included alongside the approved application says: "The existing building retains character and architectural features to the frontage – currently in [bank] corporate blue.

"Our client proposes to simply and sensitivity change this to their branding colours.

"The proposals do not seek to alter the fabric of the external appearance and are for colour changes only."

It points out that the "hanging sign" would be in keeping with other retailers.

"Internally, the feature columns remain untouched, and no works is undertaken on the upper levels," it adds.
