KIRKWOOD Homes’ appeal against the recent refusal of planning permission for their East Lodge road infrastructure will be determined by a site visit by a reporter from the Scottish Government’s Department of Planning and Environmental Appeals.

In March, councillors of the Kincardine and Mearns Area Committee voted against the developer’s proposals citing concerns about the junction design and impact on residents within the housing estate. They were also unhappy about the loss of ancient woodland within the Polbare tree belt.

In their appeal statement, Kirkwood Homes state their proposal, ”provides a more direct, logical and better designed access solution to serve the development, which also comes with less of a landscape impact than the currently consented link road connection to the Netherley Road.”

The appeal has been registered and the planning authority have been asked for their response to the appeal. Interested members of the public are entitled to make representation.
