Upper Achintore delivers sustainable, high-quality low-carbon affordable housing that responds to strong demand throughout Lochaber and the Highlands. It provides crucial support for local economic activity making it possible to attract and retain a skilled workforce. It over-delivers unit numbers in the context of the LDP, and addresses a backlog in affordable housing need. It does so in the context of a challenging, constrained site, whilst managing to provide for a design in keeping with the local scale and vernacular. This was achieved by the innovative constraints-led approach to planning. Permission was granted in June 2019 by the Highland Council.
