We're going round the course again and Highland Council will be asking the community for their input this time. If anyone thought the community would be deciding how many houses go on Sandown however, they will be disappointed. Any consultation over numbers of dwellings will be well within markers laid down by the local authority. Making another of his regular comments to the Inverness Courier today, Graham Marsden says:
"We will be looking at something in the region of 300 to 350 houses ultimately, but whether we have a business park or not has to be decided."
The Courier mentions that £2 million from the previous deal with developers was earmarked to pay off a loan that went towards building the Community Centre. Here's another quote from the Courier:
"Councillor Marsden stressed it was more important to get the plans for Sandown right, rather that rush them to pay off the loan."
