Three new homes to be built in Dingwall
Planning permission has been for the development of a row of three houses in Dingwall.
The two-storey homes will face Robertson House, with access off Greenhill Street. The rear of the row will be a blank wall facing Park Street.
The proposal has been approved despite local objections to the build regarding a loss of light for residents of Park Street, parking problems during Ross County home matches and a lack of adequate turning space for refuse lorries on Park Street. Locals also voiced concerns over possible flooding in the area.
Highland Council deferred the application in September last year to allow applicant Stuart Reedie to address the local concerns, The Press and Journal reports.
Councillors this week agreed that loss of light would not be an issue and the parking concerns had been mitigated by the creation of four extra spaces in Greenhill street.
A mixture of permeable and impermeable surfaces around the development will ease the potential flooding situation.
The turning head in Park Street is to be extended to accommodate refuse lorries of bigger dimensions than the one currently in use.
