The British Legion Club in Inverness has been granted permission by Highland Council to extend outwards to form a new entrance hall and other facilities.

The club, on King Street, is within the Inverness riverside conservation area.

Historic Environment Scotland has raised no objection to the plans, which also include placing a 10ft high flagpole on top of an 8ft wall.

The proposed extension will provide approximately 646 square feet of additional floor space.

It will comprise an entrance hall, beer cellar, bin store, and smoking area.

A smoking area is currently provided on site in a covered area, and planners say the  proposed smoking area is not expected to result in a significant increase in noise to surrounding residential properties.

The site will also provide drop-off lay-by.

The extension will be constructed from blockwork finished with smooth white render, blue-grey insulated profiled roof, painted timber louvre screen/door, and metal framed doors.

Planners say the proposal will not be detrimental to residential and visual amenity.
