Councillors have deferred a decision on plans for multimillion-pound redevelopment of a popular Inverness hotel so that they can visit the site.
The owners of the Glen Mhor Hotel, on the west bank of the River Ness, want to create a glass-fronted brewery, restaurant and visitor centre at their premises.
It would resurrect the tradition of brewing in the Haugh, where the industry disappeared in the 1700s.
Hotel owners Jon and Victoria Erasmus previously described the project as one of the “most ambitious in the city centre”.
Councillors at the south planning applications committee were due to discuss the proposals today however Councillor Donnie Kerr asked for a site visit because of his concerns over traffic and parking arrangements at the hotel.
He said it would be easy to visit because the hotel is a five minute walk from the council’s headquarters.
Nine councillors on the committee supported the request.
A date was not set for the visit.
