New plans for Fort William council offices displayed

Post Thumbnail

Revised proposals for new Highland Council offices in Fort William will be on display in a public exhibition next week.

The exhibition will take place on Wednesday September 16 in the West End Hotel from 1pm – 8pm.

This will be the second public event regarding proposals for the new offices following an earlier event was held in March.

Members of the public can view displays of revised drawings being submitted for planning permission which reflect comments made during the previous consultation event.

The proposals are for the regeneration of the former Fort William Achintore Secondary School site into the council’s new main offices to serve the town.

The site on Achintore Road, which has lain empty for more than 25 years, is owned by the council and is a listed building. The new development is planned to replace offices currently occupied by the council in Fort William at Lochaber House, Fulton House and Tweeddale, bringing an estimated year-on-year revenue savings of around £400,000.

Work on the site is expected to start early next year with the new council offices for the town completed by mid 2017.

A council spokeswoman said: “Anyone unable to attend the exhibition will be able to view the plans for the development from 9.30am to 4.30pm Mondays to Fridays from September 17 at the Highland Council Service Point at Lochaber House.

“Anyone wishing further information should contact the ward manager Dot Ferguson, Lochaber House, High Street, Fort William, PH33 6EL or e-mail”
