Next phase of homes approved for Bridge of Earn site

Next phase of homes approved for Bridge of Earn site

Plans for three new housing developments totalling a further 66 homes at the Bridge of Earn have been approved.

Developments of 29 homes, 20 homes and 17 homes will be built on land north of the A912 at Oudenarde.

The green light means GS Brown Construction Ltd can now progress with the latest phasing of its wider development at Oudenarde, which could eventually stretch to 1,600 homes on the site of the old Bridge of Earn hospital.

The latest homes were approved last year but GS Brown was seeking fresh permission after making a number of changes to its original plans.

Perth and Kinross Council’s planning and placemaking committee met on Wednesday to consider the plans.

A report to the committee said: “The number of properties has not increased, the position in general terms of housing plots has not been revised, however there have been changes to house types, finishing materials, finished floor levels, boundary treatments, garage positions and road layout.”

Councillors agreed to a recommendation from planners that the changes are acceptable and work can begin.
