Perth housing development recommended for approval

BellwayPlanning officials have advised councillors to approve plans for 164 new homes in Perth.

The Bellway Homes development will be situated on land to the west of Cherrybank Gardens and next to the Broxden services.

The application is for the first three stages of a bigger development, which if approved, will include 200 new homes in total.

In his report, Perth and Kinross Council’s development quality manager, Nick Brian, said: “This report recommends approval of the application for a development comprising 164 residential units as the development proposals are considered to comply with the relevant provisions of the Development Plan and there are no material considerations apparent which would outweigh the Development Plan.”

In 2001 planning permission was granted for the creation of offices for the National Garden for Scotland on the site.

This permission was renewed in 2004 with additional permissions for the building of a Scottish Tartan Centre, business units, and a hotel and restaurant, but these were never built.
