The Highland Council has confirmed the Section 75 Agreement for new homes in Conon Bridge, allowing Tulloch Homes, part of the Springfield Group, to move forward with their approved plans to deliver 160 private homes – of which 40 will be affordable homes – in the area.

Under the agreement, the housebuilder is set to invest £900,000 towards enhancing education, community facilities, and active travel connections in the region.

The Conon Braes South development serves as an extension to the existing Conon Bridge North development. Featuring 160 private and affordable homes, the community will also include meticulously designed landscaping and open spaces. Residents will benefit from easy access to the local primary school, shop, rail halt, and a pedestrian link from the pocket park for convenient walking routes, following community consultations.

With the Scottish Government declaring a housing emergency and anticipating a surge in demand, Tulloch can now proceed with their housing plans. This comes at a crucial time with the establishment of the Inverness and Cromarty Firth Green Freeport (ICFGF).

Expected to attract over £3 billion in fresh investments and create more than 10,000 new jobs in the Highlands and an additional 6,000 across the UK, the ICFGF is set to revolutionize the region.

Kieran Graham, the managing director of Tulloch Homes, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “We are delighted to advance our plans to meet the growing housing demand by delivering high-quality and energy-efficient homes of various tenures to cater to diverse needs in the area.”

He added, “Construction is projected to commence next summer, and we are committed to collaborating with local trades and suppliers throughout the process. The Highlands are experiencing an exciting period with the upcoming Freeport investment, and offering a range of housing options will contribute to the success of the Freeport initiative.”
