Highland Councillors approved Springfield’s proposals following a visit to the site, located just off Lochloy Road.  Of the 115 homes, 29 affordable homes will be built for Highland Council. This will include a range of apartments, semi-detached homes, detached properties and bungalows.

Across the wider scheme, Springfield will build a mix of bungalows, two-bedroom apartments and two, three and four-bedroom houses.

Springfield chief executive Innes Smith said:  ”Now planning consent has been granted, we are in a position to build 115 more new homes, including 29 affordable homes, in Nairn. Our homes have sold remarkably well here over the last five years. The selection of house types we’re building are popular because they suit what home buyers in Nairn are looking for.

“This new development provides continuity of employment for over 50 people including apprentices and supports 150 further jobs and local trades. We are confident the Kingsteps, Nairn development will complement and benefit, Nairn and its residents.”

Springfield posted its maiden interim results showing a 10.5% rise in revenue, and a 19.6% leap in adjusted pre-tax profit, in February of this year and acquired fellow housebuilder Dawn Homes for £20.1m in April.
