Details of the new application to demolish the steading at Abernyte Farm and replace it with 4 houses are starting to appear on the Perth and Kinross Planning website.
The applicant is listed as Northbank Services.
The Developer, Northbank Services, has submitted an amended plan for this development, to Perth and Kinross Council. While the new plans do not seem to be available on the Planning website as yet, I believe the major change is for the vehicle access into the development is now from the roadway to wards the village and not via the farm road at the rear of the current steading. Other changes involve the shared drainage system for the houses.
If the plans are made available on-line I will post a link for all to view and comment.

As anticipated, this development was approved. It is not believed that there will be any immendiate building taking place, as the steading was recently offered for let as storage or for wintering animals in. Perhaps in the spring.

Development Quality Manager
Reasons for Refusal
1. The proposal, by virtue of its design in terms of the appearance, height, scale and proportions is not in keeping with either the character or appearance of the area and will result in an incongruous development being introduced into the local area and is therefore contrary to Policy PM1A and PM1B of the Perth and Kinross Local Development Plan 2014 in failing to respect the character and amenity of the place.
The proposal is not in accordance with the Development Plan and there are no material reasons which justify departing from the Development Plan
