£10 Million Tourism Development Given Approval

A £10 million development project for a new city centre hotels inverness, dubbed “The House of Bruar of the North”, which has promised the creation of at least 100 new jobs in the area, has recently received planning permission from the Highland Council.

Planning officials exercised their legal powers to give the approval to the Tomatin Trading Company’s long-standing plans for a development containing a 99-bedroom hotel, alongside farm shop, 200-seat restaurant, as well as a drive-through bakery, shops and a filling station.

The development’s managing director, William Frame, says that the 12-month development could start sometime in spring, which he says would create 40 construction jobs, followed by 70 long-term hotel and retail posts, initially. He states that he’s pleased that the Highland Council has given approval for planning, which he says means that the company can work on the hard part, which is getting the development done and creating a new city centre hotels inverness that represents the best in food, drink, gifts and hospitality that Scotland can offer.

Community leaders including Inverness South councillors, Duncan Macpherson and Ken Gowans, welcomed the project with open arms, saying that it would be a huge boon to the southern gateway of Inverness.

The 3.5-acre brownfield site had detailed mixed-use approval for hotel, restaurant and retail, which it received back in 2007.

Work on getting the project set up was delayed due to a number of factors, including complex planning conditions, the banking crisis that hit the country, as well as the confirmation of a new roady layout for the dualling of the nearby part of the A9.

The site the hotel is to sit in used to be occupied by the Freemore Hotel, and, then, a Little Chef, the latter demolished in 2008.

Mr. Frame, says that getting planning permission has been a long slog, requiring a lot agreement from many people, and now that it’s moving forward, he is grateful for the Inverness planners and excited to see economic development…

Cllr. Gowans says that this new large-scale development would be really good for the surrounding area, set to bring in a lot of revenue, and he also expects that the community will be happy to back the project as well.
