Development options for sites around Lochinver

ADT contracted Matt Bridgestock of John Gilbert Architects to carry out a design workshops project to explore development options for a number of sites around Lochinver.  Workshops were run by Matt in late April and late May 2019.

Matt produced three initial sketches for possible development  – one relatively modest, including 4 housing units and some enterprise/storage units, one more ambitious, with industrial units and a total of 7 housing units, and one which represents his ‘blue-sky thinking' as to a future vision of how land use including industry, commercial development and housing could exist in the area, maybe in 20+ years time.

An online survey was carried out along with getting feedback during the workshops and on Facebook, emails etc.

Matt of John Gilbert Architects has now produced the Project Report, which includes more detailed concept design drawings and actions list for key proposals.  See the project report here:

This project has been funded by the Scottish Government’s Making Places fund, Highland Council discretionary fund and Highlands & Islands Enterprise.
