Drop-in session for new Dingwall homes

The public are being invited to come along to find out more about the proposed redevelopment of two key buildings on Dingwall High Street. 

A special drop-in event will take place on Monday 6 August in Dingwall Town Hall from 2pm to 7pm to give people the opportunity to look over the plans and to hear more about the proposed work to redevelop the Council Offices at Ross House and the former Picture House to create new homes. 

The Ross House project is being led by the Highland Council who have plans to redevelop the site into flats for rent. They will be a mixture of one and two bedroom homes with those on the ground floor suitable for tenants with varying needs. The redevelopment of the Picture House is being led by Ark Estates and the Highland Housing Alliance in conjunction with The Highland Council. There will be a range of 1 and 2 bedroom flats for both mid-market rent and affordable rent. 

During the event, which takes place in the Lower Hall, drawings and plans will be on display and representatives from the Highland Council’s Housing team, Ark Estates and the Highland Housing Alliance will be on-hand to answer any questions. 

Ross and Cromarty Civic Leader and Dingwall and Seaforth Ward Councillor, Margaret Paterson said: “Providing more quality new affordable homes is a priority for the council and both buildings which are in the heart of our town certainly need a new lease of life. This drop-in event is a great chance for people to come along and find out more about the proposals so I hope folk take up the opportunity and come to meet and speak to the teams and look over the plans.”
