The development heralds a first for Scotland where Dobbies and Tesco will combine through one shared customer entrance.
Dobbies property director Stuart Wright said: "We’re delighted to be a step closer to opening our first Dobbies garden centre in Inverness. We are investing some £5m in the project, which will create 120 new jobs for the community, all of which in turn will have a significant effect on the local economy for many years to come."
Wright added: "We want to thank Highland Council for backing our planning application which will allow us to bring a new generation garden centre to customers in Invernesshire and the wider area.
"Our plans demonstrate a new way of Tesco and Dobbies working together in Scotland to allow our customers to benefit from the strengths of each brand. People in Inverness will be able to enjoy a leisurely shopping experience at our centre whilst visiting Tesco to do their weekly shop."
