Highland Council has granted permission for six new affordable homes in Inverfarigaig on the east bank of Loch Ness.

Kinellan Building Limited applied for permission to build four detached and two semi-detached houses and members of the council’s south planning committee granted the application, despite nine objections from locals.

Objections claimed the area does not need affordable housing, and also complained about the design of the houses and the tight road network around the site.

However, council planners advised that there is a need for more housing in the area, and local members agreed.

Inverness Royal Academy is due to go over capacity in the next few years and the developer will need to help pay for an extension.

Kinellan will also pay a developer contribution to Hilton Community Centre and building work will not be allowed to start until a 40mph speed limit is introduced in the village.
