Stirling Council refuse to back sport hub plan
Stirling Council planners have refused to lend their support to a joint bid by Judy Murray, mother of tennis ace Andy Murray, alongside golfing champ Colin Montgomerie to erect a sports hub and associated housing estate at Park of Keir.

A master plan compiled by Yeoman McAllister Architects outlines plans for a tennis and golf centre on green belt land between Dunblane and Bridge of Allan together with 100 homes, a 120 room hotel and a ‘Murray Tennis Museum’.

Although the sporting facilities were welcomed the proposed residential aspect of the scheme was less well received with Claire Milne, principal planning officer at Stirling Council, said that it would not: “… meet any of the local or particular housing needs, and will in fact exacerbate affordability in the local area".

In addition Milne observed that the local landscape would be hit by a ‘significant detrimental impact’ as a result of the scheme.
