Student Accommodation at Rose Street welcomed by BID Board

At their meeting yesterday the Board of Inverness Business Improvement District (BID) unanimously welcomed the Planning Officer’s recommendation that planning permission be granted for student accommodation with 100 bedrooms in a phase 2 building adjacent to Rose Street car park. 

The development also includes provision for the creation of four commercial units on the ground floor level of the block with three proposed as retail outlets and the fourth as a restaurant.

Craig Duncan, Inverness BID Chairman said “BID has long been arguing that student accommodation is essential to reinvigorate this area adjacent to Academy Street. So we are delighted that Inverness Properties have brought forward this proposal and that it is being recommended for approval by the Planning Officer”.

“It is essential to increase footfall in this area and this type of student accommodation will be part of the mix needed.”

“We do feel that the developer has addressed the issues raised with the previous application and whilst this is a substantial building we do believe it is justified both within the Inverness City Centre Development Brief and on economic grounds.”

“We also think it is important that access has been reserved for future provision of a bus lane linking into Farraline Park.
