Go-ahead for rowing club base

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

A ROWING club’s bid for a base on the banks of the River Tay has been unan­i­mously ap­proved by coun­cil­lors.

The club­house will go on land at Sleep­less Inch, Rhynd, down­stream of Fri­ar­ton Bridge.

Tay Rowing Club, which was formed j ust a few years ago, said the two­s­torey head­quar­ters will have meet­ing rooms and chang­ing ar­eas, while an old slip­way will be up­graded to make it suit­able for mod­ern ves­sels.

The project up­set peo­ple liv­ing nearby and lo­cal au­thor­ity plan­ners were pre­sented with a pe­ti­tion of 18 names, call­ing for it to be scrapped.

They were wor­ried that a sin­gle track road which leads t o t he site was un­suit­able.

How­ever, the scheme has been ap­proved by mem­bers of Perth and Kin­ross Coun­cil’s plan­ning and de­vel­op­ment man­age­ment com­mit­tee, fol­low­ing a re­view of the road by trans­port of­fi­cers, who said they had no ob­jec­tion.
