Plans to be assessed

THE application for a housing development at Stobhill is unlikely to be considered before mid-February.

County planning officer Jenny Green said an assessment of the application has not yet been completed and no recommendations have been made.

Members of the North Area Planning Committee are due to visit the proposed site on Monday, January 13, after which a date will be set for them to determine the application. Anyone who has written to the council about the plans should then be notified.

Ms Green said: “The site is outside the settlement boundary, but a number of other factors have to be taken into account and it is very much a balancing exercise.”
