A charity's plans to turn two city centre premises into flats is to be considered by Highland councillors.

Highland Society for Blind People wants to turn its BlindCraft factory and offices on Ardconnel Street into a total of 20 flats.

Highland Council officers have recommended approval.

Members of Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey planning committee will visit the sites on Monday before taking a decision on the applications.

The factory and offices had been involved in the production of furniture and mattresses.

Objectors to the proposals have warned it would lead to increased congestion on surrounding roads.
