S5W-21272: Mark Ruskell (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 29 January 2019

To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking in response to the opinion of the Court of Session regarding the appeal for a major development at Airthrey Kerse.

Answered by: Kevin Stewart 18 February 2019

On 23 January 2019, the Court of Session quashed the Scottish Ministers’ decision of 18 June 2018 to refuse planning permission in principle for a housing development at Airthrey Kerse, Bridge of Allan, Stirling. The case will in due course be returned to the Planning and Environmental Appeals Division (DPEA) to reconsider in light of the Court Opinion. The DPEA reporter will take full account of any representations made to the original application or appeal as well as any further submissions the reporter considers necessary to re-examine this appeal following the decision of the Court of Session. The reporter will then make a recommendation to Scottish Ministers.
