A public hearing will be held on
Tuesday 25 April 2017 at 1400 in the Cathedral Halls?  This is about
Allanwater Development’s attempts to build on the top of Holmehill.

On 2nd March 2017 Stirling Council’s Local Review Body rejected Allanwater Developments’ two appeals against the Council’s Planners.   Allanwater had put forward two plans for the same spot on the top of Holmehill: one for a luxury private house and the other for an office block.   These were originally rejected last year; yesterday the Council’s Local Review Body confirmed these rejections.

In presenting their decision, members of the LRB noted that planning decisions have to reflect the policies currently in force.   This once again underlined two key points: firstly that although a mansion was demolished on the site 37 years ago, it would be wrong to build another today; and secondly that a planning agreement signed in 1987 is no longer relevant.
