Perth hotel & museum consultation kicks off
March 16 2021
Locals are being invited to have their say on proposals to build a £33.8m leisure development at West Kinfauns, Perthshire.
The mixed-use masterplan calls for the creation of a leisure attraction on 10.55ha of grassland around the headquarters of plant machinery specialists Morris Leslie.
At the heart of this plan is a four-star hotel of up to 150 rooms complemented by private lodges. A museum dedicated to preserving historic vehicles will also be established in honour of David Buick from Arbroath who went on to found the eponymous car manufacturer.
These buildings would occupy three inter-linked formal landscapes including a new public square, an entrance plaza and informal open space connected to surrounding footpaths.
In a consultation statement the applicant wrote: "With the exception of the hotel, the buildings are also clustered around the existing office building. Together with the office, the museum creates a strong building group that relates to the road as well as providing views over the Tay. The proposed location of the museum also creates a new square / public space between the buildings that is accessible to the existing users of the office building, local residents and those visiting the hotel and museum."
Representatives from the developer and ICA Architects will be on-hand to field questions during a live chat today between 15:00 and 19:00.
