Graham’s mount last ditch effort to resurrect Stirling dairy & homes bid
June 13 2018
Graham’s Family Dairy has appealed to the Scottish Government to approve its planning application for a £40m processing and R&D plant alongside 600 homes spearheaded by Mactaggart & Mickel at Airthrey Green, Stirling.
A planning application documenting the bid was lodged in 2014, outlining plans for a new primary school and public park as part, but this was refused by planners in 2016, beginning a two-year appeal battle to force it through.
The projects fate now rests in the hands of the Scottish Government which must decide whether to back or overturn the decision by Stirling Council.
Robert Graham commented: “Airthrey Green is the ideal case study for what the Sustainable Growth Commission Report refers to as the ‘Next Generation Economic Model for Scotland’. It will have a transformational, positive impact at a crucial time, not only to our business but also the local community.
“Approval will constitute a step-change in investment by facilitating the new dairy, while at the same time tackling the critical housing shortage for Stirling.”
If approved the development would include 15,000sq/ft of retail, new foot and cycle paths and infrastructure improvements such as a flood alleviation scheme.
