Cut in numbers of Highland Council offices planned

The number of offices Highland Council runs in Inverness and Dingwall are to be reduced from more than 40 to as little as two.

The local authority's resources committee has agreed to the move as part of wider efforts to make £18.6m of savings before April 2012.

Highland has 30 offices in Inverness and 12 in Dingwall.

A target has been set to reduce the numbers to one or two offices in each location within five years.
