Go-ahead for rowing club base
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.
