Plots get the green light

PLANS to erect sheds and glasshouses on allotments at Stobswood have been given the go ahead.

At a meeting of the North Area Planning Committee, councillors unanimously approved the application to develop land north east of Stobswood House to create 37 allotments with associated furniture.

Richard Scott, owner of Stobswood House, objected to the plans, saying the area was messy, the plots were not uniform and the allotments were causing disturbance and overlooking.

But councillors said the allotment scheme was a good example of a community working together.
