Green light for nine new homes on Angus steading site
Planning approval has been granted nine new homes on a former farm steading site in the Angus village of Inverkeilor.
The site off Kirkton Road on the east edge of the village sits beside the road leading to popular Lunan Bay beach.
A previous developer cleared the old steading buildings to market the land, The Courier reports.
Planning permission was previously granted for 18 new houses, but Arbroath company Moir Developments has halved the number of homes intended for the one-hectare site.
Designs by Voigt Architects show the planned development will be more in keeping with the character of the village.
The company says the detached homes it plans to build are also reflective of current housing market conditions.
The application was approved under delegated authority by Angus planning officials.
Moir Developments’ masterplan features a two-storey four/five bedroom home, four two-storey four-bed houses and three single-storey three-bed properties.
