Inverness Airport Business Park is a master planned and planning approved site with 275-acres available for commercial property development. Five key development zones have been identified and a brief introduction to each is outlined below:
Phase 1 Development, Hotel Development, Airside Development, Railside Development and the Rail Halt Development Site.
Future development phases are outlined in the masterplan and this land allows Inverness Airport Business Park to consider larger scale leasehold (rent) or long-leasehold (sale) enquiries. The entire site will have mains water and drainage infrastructure installed in 2017. All services and utilities (apart from mains gas) will be available onsite including power, communications and superfast fibre broadband.
Phase 1 Development
The access road, site infrastructure and utilities are in place meaning Phase 1 is very much open for business. The 36-acres of largely serviced land has principle planning permission for the construction of office and industrial buildings within Use Classes 4, 5 and 6.
Inverness Airport Business Park can provide bespoke property development solutions, including design and build leasehold packages (annual rent) to cater for the individual needs and requirements of potential occupiers. Alternatively, land is also available on a long leasehold (land sale) for self-build or third-party development projects, subject to the Phase 1 Masterplan and Design Guide.
There are a number of plots currently available and specific requirements can be accommodated whether that be dual site access, extended yard space, vehicle parking allowance and/or additional land for expansion and long-term future-proofing. Please contact Rory Black on firstname.lastname@example.org for further details and the latest Phase 1 site information.
There are 5 hotel sites offering up to 263,000sqft for development with planning permission agreed in principle. Plot 1 is a premium 3-acre site located just a few hundred meters from the Airport Terminal and is immediately available for hotel development. This site is ideally suited for a 100 bed hotel (with capacity for future expansion if required) and easily accessible with sufficient land included within the plot for car parking. Plots 2, 3 & 4 are also within easy walking distance of the Terminal Building while Plot 5 is situated in a later phase of the development – all these sites are approx. 2-acres in size.

There are 10-acres of premium airside land available offering immediate access to the 1,887 meter runway with Cat 1 ILS and full airfield support services. Babcock MCS Onshore Ltd (previously Bond Air Services Ltd) have been operating from Inverness Airport Business Park since 2012 and the new 30,000sqft Bristow Search & Rescue (SAR) base was completed ahead of schedule in January 2015. The site infrastructure and utilities are largely in place and the design code allows for airside safeguarding and construction regulations.
Importantly, the Airside Development has 6-acres of adjacent landside space available for occupancy and this site has been identified as the Railside Development at Inverness Airport Business Park. Further information is provided in the Railside Development section below.
Please contact Rory Black on firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of the Airside Development Proposition. This document provides an overview of what the region, location and airport has to offer and highlights the key site characteristics along with the various features and benefits available to occupiers. Also available are the Airside Masterplan, Airside Case Studies and the latest Airside Concept Designs.
To the South of Inverness Airport Business Park, 6-acres of un-serviced land is available for occupancy. The Railside and Airside Developments are separated only by the airfield perimeter fence and existing access road. The Railside Development runs parallel to the airside site and existing Inverness-Aberdeen train line and just a few hundred meters away will be the new Inverness Airport Rail Station.
Land at the Railside Development is available on short-term leasehold agreements with a maximum occupancy of up to 5-years, although a longer duration would be available for tenants located at the Airside Development. The construction of permanent buildings or facilities will not be permitted onsite for the duration of the lease agreement however, the installation of temporary accommodation and perimeter fencing is a possibility. Although a landside site, airside safeguarding and construction regulations have been considered.
Railside Plot 1 offers approx. 1-acre of un-serviced, gravelled land and is immediately available for occupancy on a short-term lease. Please contact Rory Black on email@example.com for a copy of the Railside Development Proposition.
Rail Halt Development Site
The Rail Halt Development Site is approx. 8.5-acres in size and Inverness Airport (Dalcross) Station will occupy 4.5-acres once the platform, parking spaces, access roads, site services/infrastructure and landscaping are accounted for. The remaining land is split by a stone filled suds infiltration trench which leaves 4.0-acres for occupancy between two sites: Plot 1 is 2.20-acres and Plot B is 1.8-acres.
The Rail Halt Development Site is a prominent location at IABP Phase 2 and represents a prime development opportunity for potential occupiers. The proximity to the A96 and Inverness Airport (Dalcross) Station, combined with excellent accessibility and visibility, is a big attraction for many companies.
