New Entry For St James’

St James' Church

A FACELIFT for the gateway and ground to the front of one of Stonehaven’s places of worship is on the cards.

St James’ Episcopal Church has applied for full planning permission for: alterations to access, repositioning of pillars and gates and increase boundary wall, erection of timber fence, repositioning of existing notice board and formation of new hardstanding (tar and paving stones).

The plan shows the pavement area at the gateway being increased by means of moving one of the pillars and with a dropped kerb being used. The stones in the pillar are to be numbered to enable the reconstruction of the feature.

Porous tar is proposed for the forecourt of the Church and hall, with a fence providing a boundary with the neighbouring Abbeyfield House.

The full details of the proposals are available here
