Highland Council could raise no objections to a £625m hydro power scheme planned for Loch Ness. Hamilton-based ILI Group has proposed constructing its 450MW Red John pumped storage hydro scheme near Dores. Highland councillors have previously raised concerns about increased traffic on a rural roads during its construction. To address this concern, ILI Group has proposed setting up a park-and-ride for construction workers. Hundreds of workers would be taken to the construction site from a 250-space car park in Inverness’ Stadium Drive. Council planning officers have recommended that councillors raise no objection to the project when the plans are brought back before them next week.
