See a larger image here. This area was previously zoned for housing so this simply represents a new application for the area. This observer would suggest that that would mean this application will not be refused, there may be room for manoeuvre when it comes to changes in the design however and now is the time to start making representations to the company and elected representatives and your community councils if you have any concerns, thoughts or simply if you support the project. Bearing in mind a topical issue in the Lochloy Road area just now, when asked about how the grass would be cut, the Springfield representative said that they work with one factoring company right across all their sites so that would be straight forward. Very interesting to see allotments included in the design too.
UPDATE: Casting his experienced eye over the draft plan today was River CC's Chair, Tommy Hogg. Not much gets past oor Tommy. Image below from Murray MacRae.
