Leisure-led River Tay masterplan to deliver Perth gateway
January 18 2021
Plant machinery plan Morris Leslie has revealed plans to transform its headquarters at West Kinfauns, Perthshire, with a £33.8m leisure-led development.
A four-star hotel of up to 150 rooms, holiday cabins and a museum are planned for the River Tay site, the latter telling the history of transport and vehicles from the past century.
This will bring to life several personalities associated with the sector including Buick founder David Buick; Harley Davidson co-founder William Davidson and Preston Watson, who reputedly made the first powered flight from Errol Airfield ten months before the Wright Brothers.
Morris Leslie, chairman of Morris Leslie, said: “Well-connected to the surrounding road network, including the A90, this premium destination will provide a gateway to Perth, to the surrounding area and beyond.
“The proposed scheme is of a scale that can support additional development and is ideally placed in terms of transport connection."
A proposal of application notice has been filed by ICA Architects ahead of a digital consultation scheduled for 16 March.
