Highland Council has been granted full planning permission for its Inverness West Link and permission in principle for associated projects.

Planning officials had recommended that the south planning applications committee approved both applications.

The West Link has been proposed as a way of easing travel across Inverness. The new road is opposed by a local campaign.

Campaigners say the West Link will lead to the loss of green space.

The other project involves relocating Torvean Golf Course, creating a new sports hub and parkland at Torvean and extending Kilvean Cemetery.
