Third time lucky for Perth flats plan

A construction firm has secured permission to build three blocks of flats on land near McDiarmid Park in Perth at the third time of asking.

GS Brown scrapped two previous plans to transform an acre of vacant land off Allison Crescent after opposition from residents.

A third bid saw the scale of the project reduced from 27 flats to 26 and the layout altered.

Now councillors have voted to grant planning consent.

A GS Brown spokeswoman said the flats were aimed at helping first-time buyers get on the property ladder.
