The public will get to have their say on a multimillion-pound redevelopment of Bught Park as Highland Council gears up to construct an events pavilion and refurbish changing facilities.

It is part of a wider umbrella project to deliver improvements to the Northern Meeting Park and Inverness Castle as well with almost £20 million from the UK government’s Levelling Up Fund.

In all, £7.1 million has been allocated to refurbish the Bught Park Stadium grandstand, and build an interactive museum of shinty and improved infrastructure for more large-scale outdoor events – all supported by ground source heating.

Some £5.2 million has been earmarked for the meeting park, including refurbishment of the grandstand and a new pavilion with a function room, plus ground source heating.

Two public consultations will be held today – the first event at Canal Park in Inverness from 10am-3pm and a second at the Cameron Youth Centre from 6.30-8.30pm.
