Statement: Action on unauthorised road construction, Kinross

Perth & Kinross Council has today issued a warning that unauthorised roads being constructed at the Persimmon Homes development site at Lathro Farm, Kinross will be fenced off and taken out of use from 10.00 am on Thursday 13 June 2019.

Persimmon Homes are currently building homes at the Lathro Farm site in Kinross under a planning consent granted on 31 March 2017.

The roads forming Phase 1B at the west side of the site are being constructed without Road Construction Consent.  This constitutes an offence under Section 23 of the Roads (Scotland) Act. The roads affected are between the houses which have already been built and the motorway.

A notice warning of the closure has been placed on the site to allow time for trade vehicles and plant etc to be removed.

This closure will remain in force until Road Construction Consent has been granted, this may take several months. The roads concerned will be fenced off and periodic checks will be made to ensure the integrity of these are maintained.  

We are aware that some properties within this phase of housing have already been sold with move in dates imminent. A short section of the unauthorised road which provides access to these properties will not be included within this closure for the benefit of these new householders
