Plans have been lodged for a new development of 49 low-cost homes in Ullapool.

The Highland Council-led scheme is being proposed for the site of the former Glenfield Hotel, on Old Moss Road in the Ross-shire village.

That former hotel section of the site was acquired by the local authority in 2013, with the building and staff annex being demolished in August 2014, while rough grazing to the south is owned by Compass Building and Construction Services.

A Highland Council spokeswoman said: “Planning consent is sought for a mixed tenure development that will include houses and flats for rent by the council and housing association as well as opportunities for low cost home ownership and outright purchase.

“A final decision on the tenure mix has yet to be agreed.

“Depending on gaining all statutory consents it is anticipated that works will commence on a first phase of around 16 units during late summer 2017 with the first houses being completed late 2018.”

The proposals retain the existing central road access from the former hotel on

to the A835, with one new access to the A835 proposed further north, linking to form a central spine road through the main the site.

The area is located within the Ullapool Settlement Development Area and the development has been backed by the Scottish Government.

The scheme follows a £1.8million development at Garve Road in 2015 which included 14 flats built over two storeys.
