Holmehill's Meadow plan update

June 2020 update

Since the last update, the Braeport Board has had discussions with Water Gems the garden designers and the applicant the Carman Family Foundation. It was agreed that:
The wall behind our new 'Sensory' Garden would be retained as it is.
The remaining wall will be reduced and railings added to a height that prevents entry by deer. One self locking gate would be installed to allow pedestrian entry.
This provides protection for the garden from deer as well as children and vulnerable Centre users.

However, since these discussions, the Carman Family Foundation and the Holmehill garden designers Water Gems have decided to withdraw the current planning application for the water garden and the Listed Building Consent for the wall at the Braeport Centre. The applicants have listened to community concern about the lack of clarity and detail on what is intended and the requests for additional and clearer information which have been made. The applicants will take this into consideration and will resubmit their application soon once this information is in place.

Below you will find links to the original proposed plans from the Carman Foundation for a water garden on the meadow behind the Braeport Centre. This will require planning consent.

Any questions regarding this plan should be addressed directly to Bill Carman at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

It would also be helpful, however, to get a sense of how people feel about this project - if you could email a brief for or against response back to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. it would be much appreciated
