Following a public meeting on Thursday 3rd June, SNP MSP Emma Roddick has welcomed progress on the Carse Hub at Muirtown Basin, Inverness.
Work has already begun on the low-carbon Treehouse facility, the first phase of Scottish Canal’s Carse Hub project, which will provide space for social enterprises and community greenspace within its office development and improve public access to the canal footpath.
“Living in the Carse, I know how welcome these plans will be for the local community. The number who attended on Thursday evening to hear more from Scottish Canals and raise questions showed just how much interest and appreciation there is.
“During lockdown, I think we have learned to be more protective of our green spaces, so I’m glad that this development will improve access to the canal area and the Merkinch Local Nature Reserve, both of which many people enjoy using daily.
“I am very excited to see how this project progresses over the coming months.”
