Green light for 73 new homes in Sauchie
Planning permission for a new housing development in Sauchie has been granted by Clackmannanshire Council.
The application from Alloa Golf Club is for 20 houses and 53 flats on land between Schawpark Golf Course and the A908 road between Fishcross and Sauchie.
The site is currently woodland between the edge of the golf course and the road, but also encompasses the golf club access road, car park and putting green.
In their application, Alloa Golf Club stated that they will invest proceeds from the sale of the land towards a package of long term improvements to the course and facilities, providing the club with financial stability as well as enhanced facilities for the local community to enjoy.
The development will also see an upgraded footpath to nearby Deerpark Primary School, traffic calming on the A908 and a financial contribution towards the creation of affordable housing elsewhere in Clackmannanshire.
A spokesperson for Alloa Golf Cub said: “We are delighted to have achieved the above detailed planning permission, which will now enable much needed forward planning and inward investment in the Club in the years to come. The Club also wish to thank all parties who have contributed/assisted throughout the process.”
