Your chance to comment on plans for Highland Perthshire

On Tuesday 12 December an information drop-in event will be held at Pitlochry Town Hall 2pm-7.30pm with information on the proposals in the Proposed Local Development Plan 2 for the Highland Perthshire area. Once adopted, the Local Development Plan will shape the development of the area.

There have been few changes for the Highland Perthshire area during the update and refresh of the adopted LDP.

The main changes are in Pitlochry.  The existing housing site at Middleton of Fonab is extended to the west to allow connection through to Foss Road.  There is also a small extension to the existing housing site at Robertson Crescent but this will be for access and open space only. 

In Aberfeldy the new site at Amulree Road which was previously consulted upon as an alternative to the site South of Kenmore Road, has not been taken forward as the Kenmore Road site is now under construction.

The employment site at Inver has been removed due to the risk of flooding on this site.

The settlement boundary at Murthly now includes Gellyburn to the North.

The Proposed Local Development Plan 2 and supporting documents including an update to the Environmental Report are available on the Council website at The period of representation runs from 1 December 2017 to 2 February 2018.
