A VAST majority of people would be against the permanent introduction of the new road scheme in Inverness city centre, with 74% of the voters saying they would not support the move.

In our latest poll, we asked our readers whether they would be in favour of the Spaces for People road scheme to become a permanent layout for the Highland capital's historic centre.

The new measures were introduced at the start of the coronavirus outbreak to ease social distancing, however last November talks started for them to become permanent.

Last week the project took a further step ahead after Highland Council’s Inverness city committee were told that funding had been identified for permanently embedding three of the four main city centre schemes.

A total of 1074 votes were cast in the poll, with 280 people saying they agreed to the changes to become permanent, (26%) and 794 opposing the move.
