A Transport Scotland document published on the Highland Council e-planning file for the application to turn the Rosebank Church building into 9 flats states as reason(s) for refusal:
"The development would result in an increase in the demand for parking, and would lead to indiscriminate parking on the trunk road which would increase interference with the safety and free flow of traffic."
Below that on the document a note also states:
"The developer should demonstrate that there is sufficient parking available to ensure that no vehicles park on the trunk road to the detriment of road safety."
The Highland Council's Planning Transport Team have also raised a number of issues they wish to see resolved.
For an application to turn the building into 9 flats that was received by the Highland Council in July 2010 Transport Scotland made no objection and for an application to turn the church into a day care facility that was received in August 2014 Transport Scotland also did not object.
