InvernessInverness Airport Business Park
Inverness is the UK’s most northerly city, established capital of the Highlands and gateway to the North of Scotland. Situated 6-miles east of Inverness, Inverness Airport Business Park (IABP) is located beside the region’s main hub airport, alongside the A96 and near to the A9 trunk road. A new railway station on the main Inverness to Aberdeen line is due to be completed at IABP in 2018.
IABP is a planning approved and master planned mixed-use commercial property development with approx. 275 acres of land available (over the long term) for occupancy across four key Development Zones; Phase 1, Hotel (Plot 1), Airside and Railside.
Current Status / Investor Ready
IABP Phase 1: Currently has 36 acres of serviced land available and can accommodate Office and Industrial developments within Use Class 4, 5 & 6.
We can offer bespoke design & build leasehold packages (annual rent) or alternatively, plots are available to purchase on a long leasehold (land sale) for self-build development, subject to the IABP design code.
IABP Hotel (Plot 1): We successfully completed a tendering process earlier this year and subsequently nominated a preferred bidder, who plans to develop a branded 120-bed hotel onsite by 2018.
IABP Airside: Currently has 10 acres of premium airside land available for development, offering immediate access to the 1,887 meter runway with Cat 1 ILS and full airfield support services.
IABP Railside: Currently has 6 acres of landside space available (adjacent and parallel to the airside site) and just a few hundred meters to the planned Inverness Airport Rail Station (Park-and-Ride).
It is important to note that Tier 1 Regional Selective Assistance (RSA) may be available via our partners at Highland & Islands Enterprise (HIE).
