Views sought on 400-home plan for outskirts of Fallin
A developer’s plan to deliver 400 homes in the village of Fallin has opened for consultation.
Ashfield Land has proposed the development on land north of Main Street on the eastern edge of Fallin.
The land is currently allocated for the development of up to 400 new homes in the Stirling Council Local Development Plan (LDP). Ashfield Land said its proposals have been developed taking the LDP into account, with the aim of meeting the council’s vision for the site, helping to meet housing need in the area.
The firm said: “Our ambition is to create a high-quality place in which a variety of family homes integrate positively with areas of publicly accessible open space, all of which respond to the key characteristics of the site. We want to embrace its natural qualities such as views towards the Ochil Hills, Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument, and its riverside setting.
“Landscape and placemaking are significant drivers for the masterplan, in which the creation of multifunctional spaces provides significant amenity for residents but also acknowledge its setting by providing key spaces on its edges where the wider landscape can be appreciated.”
A website has been launched as part of pre-application consultation before a planning application is submitted in the coming months.
A live consultation session will also be hosted on June 8 between 3pm and 7pm via the ‘live chat’ section of the website with members of the project team available to answer questions.
Subject to the consultation exercise and further discussions with Stirling Council and other stakeholders, it is proposed to submit a planning application in July 2020.
