This is the revised masterplan for the major development being proposed for the former Glenisla Golf Course site. The developers have lodged this along with their application for detailed planning permission for the first phase – the 60-bed care home/dementia care unit and 20 new houses outlined in red at the top left of the plan. The first phase of works would also include a biomass boiler, a pumping station and two entrance buildings as well as a new access road from Meethill Road (seen at the top of the plan), and three commercial units in what is currently the Pitcrocknie Restaurant carpark at the right of the plan above.
Future phases of development would see around 180 further houses built across the site, with new roads and landscaping throughout. The developers say that a children’s nursery and possibly shops could be included in future phases, and land immediately to the west of the site (ie, towards Alyth itself) could be available for ‘community-based projects’. The developers claim that around 130 permanent jobs would be created for the town of Alyth alone when the development is mature, generating £3.5m for the local economy.
Perth & Kinross Council are now considering the application and are due to decide in the next couple of months on whether to grant detailed planning permission.
This is an artist’s impression of what the care home might look like, and below is a detailed plan of the first phase featuring the care home and 20 houses.
