Group’s ticket of­fice plan gets go-ahead

The Press and Journal (Highlands & Islands) - - News Highlands & Islands -

A com­mu­nity group on the Black Isle has se­cured plan­ning per­mis­sion for the first phase of am­bi­tious pro­pos­als to trans­form a former ticket of­fice.

High­land Coun­cil plan­ners have ap­proved a bid to bring the long-closed ter­mi­nal in North Kes­sock back into use.

The £100,000 first stage of the pro­ject will in­volve re­in­stat­ing the pub­lic toi­lets at the site and turn­ing the former ticket of­fice into a com­mu­nity space.

The group also has a longer term £600,000 vi­sion to cre­ate a tourist at­trac­tion based around a wildlife view­ing area aimed at bring­ing in dol­phin spot­ters.

The ticket of­fice has been owned by High­land Coun­cil but a process is un­der way to trans­fer it to the North Kes­sock Ticket Of­fice Pro­ject group for a nom­i­nal fee of £1.
