Fallin masterplan reaches out to the River Forth
Ashfield Land has opened a planning consultation documenting its intention to deliver a residential development north of the villages Main Street.
An indicative proposal of application notice envisages the creation of some 400 homes on land situated between Drypow and Alton farmhouses.
The masterplan has been authored by Barton Willmore and seeks to capitalise on a landscape setting bordering the River Forth by maintaining views to the Ochil Hills, Stirling Castle and Wallace Monument.
Explaining the vision the applicant wrote: "Landscape and placemaking are significant drivers for the masterplan, in which the creation of multifunctional spaces provides significant amenity for residents but also acknowledge its setting by providing key spaces on its edges where the wider landscape can be appreciated."
This flexibility of approach allows an urban frontage to be formed along the Main Street counterposed by a 20m landscape buffer to the river.
Consultants will make themselves available on 8 June between 15:00 and 19:00 to conduct a live chat with the public.
Development would extend the village of Fallin to the east

Ahem, so let me digest this streetscape of a new neighbourhood where people and trees occupy the carriageway whilst motorised vehicles are proposed to be located on the footpath. Interesting concept. Is the local MSP a Green party member or maybe just a lack of attention to detail by the masterplanner?

#1 I think you'll find the car is in a parking space. Welcome to the 21st century.

"Key Activity Nodes" seem to be a new name for street corners, that erstwhile destination for the nation's restless youths when I was younger.

All these years studying to become a planner so as I could help find a new sense of direction for forgotten teenagers left hanging around street corners..........Ho hum.
