Pro­posal for 465 homes

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - PUZZLES -

STANLEY has be­come the lat­est Perthshire com­mu­nity to be ear­marked for a vast ex­pan­sion.

It could dou­ble in size over a 14-year pe­riod if Fife hous­ing group Muir Homes gains per­mis­sion for its plan.

In the re­gion of 465 new prop­er­ties would be added all around the vil­lage — eight miles north of Perth — in five phases.

A plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion in prin­ci­ple for the de­vel­op­ment will go be­fore elected mem­bers for the first time at a meet­ing of Per th and Kin­ross Coun­cil’s plan­ning and de­vel­op­ment man­age­ment com­mit­tee to­mor­row.

Coun­cil plan­ners have rec­om­mended the plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion be ap­proved. Muir Homes would then give de­tailed plans at a later date.

Head of plan­ning Nick Brian said: “The ex­pan­sion of Stanley is a long­stand­ing pro­posal and is al­lo­cated in the lo­cal de­vel­op­ment plan.The site is well placed to de­liver a sus­tain­able com­mu­nity, serv­ing as a well-con­nected satel­lite set­tle­ment to Perth.”
