THREE new houses could be built in Portmahomack if planners give the proposal their backing.
Micky Austin, who is based in Orkney, has applied to Highland Council to build the properties on land 60m north-west of Knock Shortie Road.
The plans are currently under consideration by planning officers and also include a proposed new access off Knock Shortie Road.
The applicant has stated that he had a pre-application meeting in March last year with the council and had wanted to build four properties parallel to council houses in Chapel Place. But this has since been reduced to the current three units on what was described as a vacant plot.
Scottish Water said there is “currently sufficient capacity” in the network to accommodate the housing but added that “further investigation” might be required once a formal application is received.
