Plans to expand a Lochaber village have been revealed.
A Lochaber village could be about to grow if a planning application for 39 houses and a shop is granted.
RE Campbell Joiners has submitted plans to build 39 houses and a shop in Spean Bridge, just north of Fort William.
Ten of the homes, opposite Spean Crescent, would be affordable.
The village currently has a population of around 560.
Although the community is broadly supportive of the scheme, they have called for an extension of the 30mph speed limit to cover the site and protection of mature trees.
John Fotheringham, chairman of Spean Bridge, Roy Bridge and Achnacarry Community Council, said the group saw the benefits of the project and were pleased it would be phased to minimise disruption.
He added: “For us it is essential that the (30mph) speed limit is moved adjacent to the southern boundary of the site to allow for a similar movement of the flashing warning light to protect the new entrance and the pedestrian crossing which the developer has agreed to install.”
As well as houses, there is a shop and a park planned for the site near River Spean and Glendale Burn.
The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) has lodged an objection on the grounds there is lack of information on flood risk, while the council’s flood risk management team is seeking more information about drainage.
Councillors will discuss the scheme at a later date.
