Regular readers will recall that the proposal for a "Ghost Island" instead of a roundabout to access development at Delnies became a bit of a saga and has been running for some time now.
The Press and Journal reports:
"It is the latest twist in the proposals tabled by Cawdor Maintenance Trust which have been on the table now for almost a decade.
The developer has outline planning permission for the development – but has been seeking to amend the proposal to build a new roundabout to give access to the site off the A96 Inverness to Nairn road.
However, the application was refused by Highland Council and an appeal has now been dismissed by a Scottish Government reporter."
