Scottish Natural Heritage Forest Enterprise  


The Highland Council has welcomed the formal directive issued by the Scottish Executive to Scottish Natural Heritage that the new headquarters of Scotland’s environment agency should be established in Inverness.

Convener Councillor Alison Magee said: “This clear direction is very welcome indeed and sets a clear target for achieving the move to Inverness.  We are working very closely with Highlands and Islands and Enterprise and the SNH relocation team to ensure that a suitable site is found for the new headquarters and that staff are given every support to move to the Highlands.  We would expect the first familiarisation visits to begin next month.”

Vice-Convener Councillor Michael Foxley, added: “The Council is excited by the creation of the new SNH headquarters, which is expected to accommodate 300 staff, as well as their decision to establish the headquarters of Forest Enterprise Scotland in Inverness. This gives us a real opportunity to establish the Highlands as the United Kingdom’s main centre for the environment and rural land use.”
