Waste sorting plant near Caledonian Canal gets go-ahead

The Scottish government has approved plans for a waste sorting plant near the Caledonian Canal in Inverness.

Highland Council had rejected the proposed waste transfer station on Carsegate Road next to the Muirtown Basin.

But Scottish ministers have given it the green light after an appeal by developers Munro Construction.

Objectors raised concerns that the plant would attract vermin and cause bad smells - claims the company denied.
