Inverness Brewery Plans Rejected

Plans to construct a new brewery in Inverness have been rejected by Councillors.

The proposals by the owners of Glen Mhor Hotel wanted to demolish a bar to allow the development to be created as part of the existing building.

Concerns regarding the plans had previously been raised by the Highland Council, such as parking availability as well as the size of the development.

However, following a site visit Councillors unanimously decided to turn down the proposals.
