Community Councils are statutory consultees for planning applications.  Important local applications are flagged up at our meetings, often in advance via the Office Bearers’ Report, which is subsequently appended to the minutes.  Current live issues are listed below.  We have some general information on planning   on another page. 

Former Cluny Centre  An application has been made for a change of use to a nursery and wedding venue.  The latter is a matter of serious concern to neighbouring residents as discussed at our meetings in on 21 February and 21 March.  We have lodged objections to the application for change of use and the linked application for listed building consent.

7 Canaan Lane (site of former public toilets)  The application for a 6-storey block of 11 flats was turned down at the planning committee.  An appeal went to the Scottish Government Directorate of Planning and Environmental Appeals (DPEA) and was refused.  A new application has now been made, reference 18/01506/FUL.  The new design is 5 storeys but the overall height remains the same.
