Highland Council has launched a consultation document on ambitious plans to build 3,000 new homes on the outskirts of Inverness.
The draft Inverness East Development brief sets out the proposals for developed to deliver the urban expansion of the Highland capital.
It includes up to 3,000 new and a range of local facilities including shops and parks woven together by streets for walking and cycling.
The council has also published its Developer Contributions Guidance document setting out how much developers will be asked to pay to offset the impacts of their development proposals on infrastructure like schools, parks, roads and sports facilities.
Both documents are available online for comment until March 9.
There will also be public exhibitions next week.
The first takes place at Smithton-Culloden Free Church on January 23 between noon and 7pm, the second the next day at Tesco Extra at Inverness Retail Park, between noon and 7pm, and the third at Inverness Col!ege UHI on February 1 between noon and 5pm.
Councillor Allan Henderson, chairman of the development and infrastructure committee, said: “Through this consultation Highland Council is continuing to engage with the communities in the east of Inverness to ensure that this major urban expansion area is developed correctly.”
Inverness Provost Helen Carmichael added: “The online consultation makes it easy for people to tell planning officers what they think.”
