The latest news – hot off the press – is that after many years of inaction while the seagulls nested and the bus station slowly rotted, the developer who owns the abandoned building has just submitted a planning application. The new building is listed as a supermarket with 12 flats above it, in a four storey building. Others have described it as “a tower block with a corner store at ground level”. The plans can be viewed at http://wam.highland.gov.uk/wam/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=documents&keyVal=LSCCN8IH7R000 .
Is this the right sort of building for such a key location in the town centre? Will it improve the view, attract tourists and visitors, and help to revive the town centre? Please give NICE your comments below.
