A96 Corridor masterplan
The A96 Corridor Growth Development Framework covered all of the land between Inverness and the border with Moray and south to the B9006. The Inverness City region continues to be one of the fastest growing areas in Scotland.
The National Planning Framework for Scotland (2004) promoted the City region as one of the key development areas in Scotland over the next 20 years, specifically referring to potential within the A96 Corridor. Both the Highland Structure Plan and the Inverness Local Plan identify the Corridor as the preferred location for long-term development.
