More than 600 acres of Scottish Highland is to be turned into a business park under plans submitted to the Highland Council this week.

Inverness Airport Business Park, a joint venture between Moray Estates Development, Highlands and Islands Airports and Highlands and Islands Enterprises, want to turn the land next to Inverness Airport into 3.8m sq ft of business space.

The masterplan, designed by Ken Shuttleworth’s Make, spans the next fifty years of the site, is supported by the Highland Council.

Mixture of uses

The park will be a mix of business and research space, light industrial, logistics/freight and hotel and conferencing facilities.

The aim of the scheme is to expand local business along the A96 corridor between Inverness and Nairn.

The proposed scheme will also be next to the proposed new town of Tornagrain.
