Scotia Homes announces plans for 100 new homes in Bridge of Earn
Scotia Homes has announced plans to build over 100 new homes as part of a £20 million development in Bridge of Earn.
The firm intends to build on a development at the southern edge of the town.
The site, which is currently agricultural land, is bordered to the west by The Meadows and Dunbarney Avenue and by Wicks O’baiglie Road to the east.
The firm has indicated that a quarter of the 110 homes will be affordable.
Scotia Homes said the development will see “substantial inward investment” to the local area. It will also create significant employment and support apprenticeship roles during the construction phase.
The firm has submitted a proposal of application notice (POAN) to Perth and Kinross Council. The firm has also presented the proposal to the local community.
Roger Laird, planning and development lead at Scotia Homes, said: “It was great to host an in-person drop-in session. The high level of interest in our proposals since we began consulting is encouraging.
“The level of feedback from the local community and prospective buyers is pleasing.”
A planning application is likely in early summer this year, The Courier reports.
If approved the development would commence in autumn 2023, with completion by the end of 2026.
