The Craighouse Partnership have submitted some new plans for Craighouse. The files are still being uploaded to the planning “portal”, here. There are very few pictures of the new scheme, so it’s hard to see what the buildings at the 6 proposed development sites and 12 car-parks would actually look like.
As you may know if you have been following the campaign, we have been working on an alternative plan for the site. This is going extremely well, with a lot of very useful people keen to get involved, including potential funders. So this is becoming very exciting. You can read what we wrote about this last year, here. We are still putting together detailed plans to present publicly, but expect to see these soon.
In the meantime, you can read what someone who knows a lot about planning and transport has to say about the new scheme here, along with a very detailed objection.
If you want to hear what the developers’ supporters have to say, here is an article by local journalist John McLellan supporting the development and criticizing the campaign in the Evening News. The article is called “Progress Versus Envy”.
