Milton of Leys set for major suburban expansion

Tulloch Homes have opened a public consultation for a major residential development at Druid Temple and Welltown on the outskirts of Inverness.

A proposal of application notice lodged with Highland Council makes provision for hundreds of homes alongside a primary school, commercial and retail facilities.

In a statement the housebuilder wrote: "The proposed layout identifies broad pockets of development set within a carefully considered enhanced landscape setting, creating a sustainable and accessible community.

"It is our view that the development will make a significant contribution to housing supply and choice in Inverness and the wider environs, whilst delivering significant affordable housing provision and a primary school, as well as other community facilities, open space and landscaping bringing social and economic benefits.

"In line with Scottish Government advice, an internal vehicular loop will connect through the development."

Accessed from Old Edinburgh Road the site is located to the west of Milton of Leys to the south of the Highland capital and is partially bisected by an overhead electricity line.

Working with the undulating topography which includes a number of ridges and established woodland the scheme seeks to consolidate a wave of suburban expansion in the area while accommodating pedestrian and cycle access to the remaining countryside.

What ever was the point in the Highland Housing Fair. In 12 years it's been completely engulfed by the usual profit driven rubbish. We can do, and should be doing, so much better than this!

Nothing says sustainable urban development quite like 'internal vehicular loop'

Will the full road network and the other amenities ie schools, doctor surgeries,comunity halls, parks etc be put in place before the houses are built and occupied ? I doubt it, also will the hospital be able to cope with the increase in population ? of course the builders would have to contribute towards the expence of that, but, Hey Ho don't hold your breath.
