Fort business owners call for High Street to open to traffic

OWNERS of small businesses in Fort William have called for a re-introduction of one-way traffic and short-term parking into the town’s High Street in a bid to increase footfall to shops.

The idea was mooted at last week’s meeting between local MP Ian Blackford and traders from across Lochaber, which was organised by Gillian Sloan of ‘Gallery in the Fort’ to raise concerns and discuss ways to increase business.
