Chance to have your say on plan­ning blue­print

Strathearn Herald - - NEWS -

Strath res­i­dents are re­minded that they have the op­por­tu­nity to see Perth and Kin­ross Coun­cil’s pro­pos­als for de­vel­op­ment of the area - and have their say on the plans - at a drop-in ses­sion at the Strat­hearn Com­mu­nity Cam­pus in Cri­eff on Satur­day, Jan­uary 20.

The pro­posed Lo­cal De­vel­op­ment Plan 2 (LDP2) for Perth and Kin­ross was pub­lished late last year and a con­sul­ta­tion on the pro­pos­als is cur­rently un­der way.

Hundreds more homes could be built on sites in Strat­hearn set aside for far fewer houses five years ago if pro­posed changes to the coun­cil’s LDP go ahead un­chal­lenged.

The pro­posed LDP2, which will be used to in­form de­ci­sions on de­vel­op­ments in Perthshire for the next five years, rec­om­mends in­creas­ing the num­ber of houses that can be built on a num­ber of sites al­ready iden­ti­fied as suit­able for large hous­ing de­vel­op­ments.

It is be­ing sug­gested that a site at Broich Road in Cri­eff could hold up to 639 houses in­stead of ap­prox­i­mately 300 as is stip­u­lated in the lo­cal plan at present.

Sites in Com­rie and Dun­ning have also been ear­marked for an in­crease in houses while PKC plan­ners have also rec­om­mended a num­ber of new sites be added to the next LDP, in­clud­ing one at North West Kirk­ton at Auchter­arder - which the doc­u­ment says could end up ac­com­mo­dat­ing any­where be­tween 83 and 128 new homes in the fu­ture.

The con­sul­ta­tion on the pro­posed LDP2 will end on Fe­bru­ary 2.

The pro­posed LDP2 is avail­able on­line at www.pkc.gov.uk/ pro­posedLDP2.

The web­site con­tains in­for­ma­tion on how to com­ment, back­ground doc­u­ments and a sum­mary of the pro­pos­als.

A se­ries of drop-in events through­out Perthshire are be­ing held to give res­i­dents the op­por­tu­nity to see the main pol­icy changes and site pro­pos­als in their area and to talk to coun­cil plan­ning of­fi­cers.

The ses­sion in the com­mu­nity cam­pus on Jan­uary 20 runs from 11am to 3pm.
