WORK is expected to start on seven new houses in Catfirth next year.
Local building company E&H has received full planning permission from Shetland Islands Council for the group of private houses near to Freester.
The site previously had planning permission in principle granted for seven houses.
The area was also the subject of interest from Blackwood Distillers to create a whisky distillery, although that never came to fruition.
E&H managing director Bobby Elphinstone said: “We are pleased that the Catfirth application has been approved.
“We hope to commence work on this project in the spring of next year.”
