"An Internationally renowned planning expert who is helping to rebuild Louisiana and Mississippi following devastating hurricanes is to turn his attention to a new town in the Highlands.

Florida-based Andres Duany will help draw up the blueprint for a community between Inverness and Nairn."

"Mr. Duany was appointed by Moray Estates, which plans to build about 5,000 houses, schools, shops and other services on a 350-acre site near Tornagrain, south of the A96 trunk road. Lord Doune, of Moray Estates, said of Mr Duany: 'He's a leader in his field and it's a privilege for us to be working with him.'"
