Harviestoun Residential Development
Harviestoun have held a public consultation to seek views on the development of their land holdings to the south east of Dollar.
The first Open Event was held on the 16th of June at the Burnside Hall. The second event was held on the 22nd of September at the Burnside Hall. You can see the display boards and submit feedback using the links below.
A Planning Application will then be submitted in Autumn 2018.
Hard copies of the planning documents are available at Dollar Community Library in The Hive.
New Housing and Sports Facilities:
The trust has been working closely with the community council to encourage attendance at the public consultation meetings for the proposed substantial new housing developments and a Dollar Academy sports facility built to the south and east of Dollar.
We understand that the meetings were very well attended with many opinions expressed both for and against. We will provide regular updates as soon as we know more.
If you would like to look into things further the PPCA, who are handling the planning of the development, have provided us with their ‘Dollar Masterplan’ which you can read [HERE]
A further Public Consultation Meeting was held on the 1st of August at the Dollar Civic Centre. An updated, more detailed plan has been provided see the link below:
Dollar Community Council are holding an Open Meeting at the Civic Centre on the 20th of August.
Castle Campbell Hotel:
Clackmannanshire Council is considering a planning application to convert the old Castle Campbell Hotel building into residential flats.
The Trust’s view is that, whilst we support the objective of preserving and improving the former Castle Campbell Hotel building, we believe conversion to flats only is not an appropriate solution and there are alternatives which should be explored which would be more in keeping with the location and with local needs.
We have written an official comment to the planning department which you can view [HERE]
The Planning Application was discussed by Clackmannanshire Council on the 21st of June and they decided to grant planning permission for 11 residential flats.
