Councillors approve planning application for Craighouse campus

Cllr Ian Perry, Planning Convener comments on today's decision.

Reports considered today by the Development Management Sub Committee

Vote was nine for proposal and six against

“This has been a very difficult decision for the Committee to make and I appreciate that not everyone will be happy. The Committee’s main concern was to protect the listed buildings from further deterioration and I believe that this was the best outcome for the site.

“During the three years that this proposal has been discussed, the developer has taken on board some concerns from the local community such as significantly reducing the number of houses to be built on the site. The developer has also agreed to hand over 80% of the land to allow the public to access open space and woodland.”
