De­vel­op­ers start work on Blair Hill

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS - Clare Damodaran

Work has be­gun on con­vert­ing the for­mer Hill Pri­mary School in Blair­gowrie into res­i­den­tial ac­com­mo­da­tion.

Plan­ning per­mis­sion for the de­vel­op­ment - which en­tails con­vert­ing the two school build­ings into a to­tal of 17 apart­ments and one new-build house - was ap­proved by Perth and Kin­ross Coun­cil in the sum­mer.

The pro­pos­als for the project, which is to be known as ‘Blair Hill’, had al­ready re­ceived plan­ning per­mis­sion from His­toric En­vi­ron­ment Scot­land.

Cri­eff-based de­vel­op­ers Cor­ryard told the Blairie that they have started work on the site and that they are now aim­ing to have the first phase of the project - the 1940s build­ing at the front of the site which will com­prise five apart­ments - com­pleted next sum­mer.

The sec­ond phase of the project, which will be the con­ver­sion of the orig­i­nal Vic­to­rian build­ing, will fol­low six months af­ter­wards.

Most of the two and three bed­room apart­ments, which the de­vel­op­ers say will all have a “wow” fac­tor, will have ei­ther a south­fac­ing bal­cony or pri­vate gar­den, and will range in size from 120 sqm to 195 sqm.

Each apart­ment will have two pri­vate car park­ing spa­ces and also a se­cure stor­age area.

John Burke, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Cor­ryard, said that they were hop­ing to launch the prop­er­ties for sale in the new year “when work has pro­gressed and when in­ter­ested par­ties can walk around the apart­ment spa­ces”.
