Planning application approved for Killearn affordable homes

KillearnStirling Council’s Planning and Regulations Panel has approved plans to build 35 new properties in Killearn.

The development will be situated on land between Gartness Road and Blairessan House near Station Road and includes plans for 12 affordable homes.

The proposals were approved by the panel at its meeting earlier this week subject to a number of conditions laid out in the planning report submitted to the Panel.

The Panel also agreed on three additional conditions: the creation of a construction management plan, a landscape management plan and a traffic plan.

Planning and Regulation Panel convenor, Alasdair MacPherson, said: “One of our key priorities is to build more affordable homes across the Stirling Council area as part of Strategic Housing Investment Plan. The land at Killearn was identified for housing as part of our Local Development Plan and given that Killearn is a highly pressured area, we welcomed the chance to bring new homes there. I look forward to seeing this project getting underway and for new tenants to be able to access these new properties in the future.”

A public consultation, as well as consultations on the suitability of the houses and the effect the development would have on schools and roads in the area were carried out in 2016.
