Tillyoch – Proposed Housing Development – Update August 2021

First Endeavour (FE), the developer, is holding a second Public Exhibition on their proposed scheme shortly.  This will be online only, via the website

FE tell us the arrangements are as follows:
  • The website will go live on 11 August
  • The live event will be on Wednesday 18 August between 2pm-8pm. You can have a video meeting with the developer’s team during this time – book a slot via the website by 16 August
  • The website will remain live for a further two weeks. Comments can be submitted until 5pm on 1 September
After the event closes, FE are required to submit a report to Planning listing the issues which have been raised and what changes they intend to make to their scheme as a result.
Steps after that are:
  • a Pre Application Forum between FE and Councillors on 30 September
  • should FE then decide to go ahead, they will submit a planning application, probably Planning Permission in Principle. This is likely to be in the second half of October, and you can then put in comments to Planning
Do please take part in the online exhibition if you can, and if a planning application is made, comment on that too.
Whether you think the scheme is just the wrong thing to do, or you like the idea, or you could perhaps live with the scheme provided they sort out certain things, do comment – both at the Public Exhibition and on the planning application.
More details can be found in a letter from the developer below.
