Highland Council give the nod to £23m Inverness Justice Centre
A £23m justice centre in the Highland capital of Inverness has been given the all-clear by planners, handing Reiach & Hall Architects and the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service the green light to progress the build in the spring.

Situated on Longman Road the V-shaped Inverness Justice Centre will offer purpose built accommodation for the service, enabling it to vacate its current home in Inverness Castle which will subsequently be turned into a tourist attraction.

SCTS chief executive Eric McQueen, said: “This is a very exciting development and unique in its vision to bring together a range of organisations who work within the justice environment in the Highlands.”

Landscaping work will be carried out by Horner + Maclennan.

Finally a bit of progress in the Highlands.

Inverness gets it’s castle to be a visitor attraction – as it should be – and the court gets moved to a more convenient location away from the centre of the city. Now the old Longman Campus just needs ripped down, it is unfortunate that this new court will be situated next to such a brutal building.

Good job R+H & SCTS, look forward to watching the progress
